president's speech to students
Many of the students, even (especially?) those directly in front of the president can be seen recording the speech with their phones and cameras ~ instead of watching the speech directly, they watch it through the screens of their electronic recording devices. And is it any wonder? The president's stationary body, rhythmic teleprompter head turns, and cliched hand gestures are designed for the small screen.
