New topography concerns of HDTV


No, we aren’t talking about changes in signal contours causing stations to lose viewers, we’re talking about changes in the appearance of politicians due to the unforgiving resolution of high definition television – the topography of the face — causing them to lose voters. According to Politico, current legislators who cleared the way for HDTV will have to be very careful with their TV appearances to avoid losing ground to younger, smoother-skinned opponents.

RBR/TVBR observation: Sometimes it seems that nothing on this planet can turn on a dime as effectively as a motivated politician. We suspect they’ll adapt to this new challenge with lightning speed.
