Last night, NBC’s Matt Lauer hosted a live townhall event — the Commander In Chief Forum in New York City — wherein he separately interviewed Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on national security, military affairs and veterans issues in front of an audience mainly made up of members of the military.
Conservative actor James Woods, a rare breed in Hollywood, tweeted this:
Here’s the HD image of Hillary with the ear piece in her left ear:
Woods also tweeted a Clinton email from the Wikileaks archive in which Huma Abedin asked Hillary, “Did u take your earpiece or do I need to get it?”
Woods then linked to an article by TruePundit which reported that Hillary was wearing an earpiece to receive “stealth coaching” during the NBC live town hall event.
According to TruePundit, “NYPD sources involved with the NBC forum’s security detail confirm Clinton was wearing an ‘inductive earpiece,’ the same technology employed by almost all lead Broadway actors to receive forgotten lines and stealth off-stage cues from directors. The flesh-colored earbud is easily concealed. There are no wires running directly to the ear like you see with the units employed by Secret Service protection detail personnel.” The article goes on to provide technical details about the earpiece, asserting that it is “almost invisible to anyone” and is “normally issued to law enforcement or corporate security teams.”
Note: I tried to access TruePundit, but got a “500 Internal Server Error” message. Hmm….
Below are a picture and description of Inductive Earpiece by Professional Sound Corporation:
Professional Sound Corporation® has met the high demands for discrete cueing with the development of the Inductive Earpiece. This inductive cueing system is quite simple to use. Audio is transmitted from any source via an inductive loop. The talent [actor] can wear a small, flexible neck loop which couples audio via a low level magnetic field into a hearing aid style earpiece. Alternately, a perimeter or “room loop” may be used to encircle an entire room or stage allowing many people to receive the same cue. Both of these two uses allow the talent to receive a discrete cue on camera.
The Professional Sound Corporation® Inductive Earpiece is routinely used for cueing of news anchors, actors, stage performers, dancers, and other on camera personalities. Its small size can be worn by both adults and children alike. It is made of a flesh color ABS plastic to provide better on camera concealment. The PSC Inductive Earpiece comes complete with a cleaning brush, ear swabs, a supply of batteries and an attractive carry case. This small Inductive Earpiece comes with a 90 day, limited warranty.
