The Version of Reality You Didn't Hear on TV

"After my interview with Dean and his wife I noticed that on that tape he's holding a hand-held microphone designed to filter out the background noise. It isolates your voice. The crowds are deafening to us standing there, but the viewer at home hears only our voice.

We asked the reporters who were there to help us replicate what they experienced in the room. Dean's boisterous countdown of the upcoming primaries as we all heard it on TV was isolated, when in fact he was shouting over the roaring crowd.

And what about the scream as we all heard it? In the room, the so-called scream couldn't really be heard at all."

Thanks for jumping on that right away, Sawyer.
