This bugs me. Have you noticed the practice of television camera operators to focus too closely on faces? No one stands that close to another person. If anyone did, the other person would push him or her away. You can't do that with a television. You are forced to inspect every blemish on a person's face, the inside of a nose, or the interior of an ear.
This practice probably comes from boredom on the part of camera operators. They feel the need to do something, so they adjust the distance. Why can't they just sit there and read a book? They should focus the camera at a reasonable distance and let the bloody thing go.
