Ever since they got rid of Matt, the opening shot has been such a non event. Where's the nice pan outside of the building? Instead a slow, boring gallery shot.


It depends on the season. When there’s not much going on outside they may not feel the need to setup a jib and break it down for five minutes of air time. In the summer when there are more outside reports it’s typically setup and they have done the pan.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

There’s a strike going on in LA where the teachers union of the nations second largest school district LAUSD where teachers are picketing for more resources, teachers and support staff. MSNBC has done a push back for a while showing the picket line which for the most part was fine however the same feed is being used for cross talk for affiliates which leads to things like this...

They quickly cut it back to full screen.

I get what MSNBC is trying to do. Sadly the news channels are all Trump and rarely cover any other story. I do like the idea of a developing story pushback, rather than the typical "monitoring/awaiting" box we usually see on CNN,FNC and MSNBC. Clearly this was designed to encapsulate an entire screen if expanded. The oversized shutdown clock and other furniture, makes it obviously that a producer/director asked for this on the fly as coverage began for the day. Going forward hopelessly they can find a more elegant solution. But I kinda prefer the pushback idea than another piece of crap cluttering up the main screen. CNN is notorious for screen clutter.
