discussion scripted?

Reader comment on item: Debate about possible war between Israel and Hamas

Submitted by myth (Germany), Nov 13, 2012 at 17:35

The Gaza and London panelists were staring at me with persistence. I believe they were reading from a teleprompter. It seems like a staged pseudo-discussion to me with the teleprompter facilitating the speech of the pro-Gaza penalists. That leaves me with the question whether or not the activist from London knew Daniel Pipes' name at all. Was this all scripted before the cameras went on the air and someone forgot to feed Daniel Pipes' name into the teleprompter?
