    He appears to be reading the teleprompter to one side of the camera. Typically, the prompter is placed right above the camera so you can look straight ahead.

    I love the concept and the content, it's just this one execution detail that seems off.

    •  Thanks. I had thought it might be a teleprompter (0+ / 0-)

      but assumed everyone already knows better than to have it at the side.  Rewatching it, I see his face turned to his left most if not all the time.

      Dance lightly upon the Earth, Sing her songs with wild abandon, Smile upon all forms of Life ...and be well.

      having it slightly off, IMHO, makes it more conversational, like when you are sitting with someone. It had to be center right because Fox would have called him a leftist socialist...not that he should care.
