The Inside News

Why do TV reporters in the field talk directly to the anchor people when they give their reports?

And why do sports announcers talk only to each other, as if they're alone at a game?

The airwaves are supposed to be public. We, the audience, have been reduced to eavesdroppers and voyeurs.
