Live — on tape

May 29th, 2012

KITV will air a recording of Tuesday’s forum with U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono and former congressman Ed Case in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate on a digital channel Tuesday night and rebroadcast it on the network on Saturday afternoon.

Tonight’s broadcast of the Hawaii Lodging and Tourism Association forum is on MeTV Digital 126 at 7 p.m. and Saturday’s is on KITV at 4 p.m.

Case had complained that Hirono would not agree to any debates sponsored by the commercial television networks. The congresswoman has agreed to a televised debate on PBS Hawaii on June 14.

    “Live — on tape”? Does this mean the debate can be edited and voices dubbed before live broadcasting? Why not just use English subtitles?

    I don’t have digital TV, so there is a chance taping may be edited to suit the needs of the candidate. Hope they lip sync without looking like a “Chinese martial arts” Movie.
    Mouth moves but no words come out. “Right”.

    Will the KITV 4pm Saturday broadcast edit out the clear debate winner, John Carroll, and make sure as many mentions of Lingle by Heckel and Jeckel get in?
