TV networks have eyes everywhere at RNC

Traditionally, broadcast media honors requests not to be filmed, like when videographers record B-roll footage of a day at the beach, says Dan Kennedy, a journalism professor at Northeastern University who runs the blog MediaNation (no relation to ABC’s Kennedy).
But when there’s a small camera mounted to a building, how does someone request they not be recorded? The media’s use of the equivalent of security cameras to cover news “raises ethical issues we haven’t thought through,” Kennedy says.
