They say a picture is worth a thousand words and boy are they right.
Ever notice when Joe Biden gives a public speech, the camera stays tight on him, and there is never a wide angle?
For example, note the camera angle when Biden mocked gun owners by telling them they would need F-15s to defend themselves.

Based on the camera angle one would imagine that Biden is speaking to a group the size of the one below, which was a Trump rally earlier this summer.

But Fox News did take a wide shot during Biden’s speech and…well.we’ll let the video below speak for itself.
Good on FOX for the wide shot showing the gathering

They keep the camera tight on Biden with people behind him because they are trying to emulate the size of a Trump rally.
In the summer of 2021, CNN attempted a similar stunt however, below is a picture from the back of the room.
