NBC: Is it live or is it taped?

The New York Times blog questions NBC’s practice of screening broadcasts that are live to Eastern and Central time zones are actually taped for Pacific and Western time zone viewers. The feed shown to Pacific and Western time zone viewers still has the “live” water mark shown, even though it is not.

An NBC spokesman said the live graphic cannot be stripped away when it sends the tape-delayed feed of the prime-time broadcasts to Mountain and Pacific zones. Hmm, we can land a spacecraft on Mars, but we can’t strip off a misleading graphic from videotape.
