This is the "disappearing nose"; video clip from CNN some have alleged shows a green-screen glitch when the tip of Anderson Cooper's nose "disappears". Simply viewing the clip in a higher quality format reveals that the glitch was not the result of a green-screen image, but was due to low quality video compression. See for yourself at 3:33 in the clip (where his nose disappeared in some low quality clips). His nose is there!

The truth is that CNN and Anderson Cooper were broadcasting from Newtown, CT the entire week of that broadcast. A similar clip broadcast on December 20, 2012 (one day before this clip aired), shows Anderson Cooper conducting an interview from the exact same location. However, in that clip he's interviewing a man with glasses. Through the lenses of the man's glasses, you can clearly see the lens-warped background of the scene, including people walking by. THIS WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE WITH A GREEN SCREEN and proves that Cooper was indeed at the Newtown, CT Town Hall where he is seen in the above clip interviewing the mother of Noah Pozner.

Also in that same clip, it's raining lightly in the background and at around 2:19 a dripping wet umbrella tips onto the interviewee, at which point Cooper reaches out to assist in lifting it back into place. If a green screen was being used, I suppose the studio crew used a wet umbrella as a prop and dropped it onto the guest in order to make it seem more real?

Here's another clip filmed the same night and from the same location as the "green screen" clip. If it was filmed inside a CNN studio, it's pretty nifty how they added the detail of snow flakes falling and blowing lightly onto the interviewee: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1A9Mw...

But there's more. Below you will find links to Anderson Cooper's Newtown reporting from from the week of 12/17/13 - 12/22/13:
