Nancy Grace, Ashleigh Banfield And The Case Of The Parking Lot Liveshot

The sleuths at The Atlantic Wire have uncovered a cable news conspiracy of massive proportions. Earlier today Ashleigh Banfield interviewed Nancy Grace about the rescued women in Cleveland. The video certainly appeared as though Banfield and Grace were in different locations–if not different cities entirely–during the conversation.

But all was not as it seemed. As Dashiell Bennett and Philip Bump discovered, Banfield and Grace were talking to one another from the same parking lot in Phoenix, mere feet away from each other. The proof is in the GIF:

The pair are there to cover the verdict in the Jodi Arias trial, which will happen when the jury decides her fate. We can only assume that some sort of obstacle (perhaps a parked car, or a row of shopping carts?) prevented Grace from joining Banfield on the same set.

One thing is certain: we will never view a liveshot the same way again.
