At a CNN town hall meeting with Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, the cable net used a stage director to pump up the audience for the possible 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, according to Erik Wemple at the Washington Post:

To add “energy” to its show (attended by the Erik Wemple Blog), CNN deployed an enthusiastic stage director who coached the audience to applaud at various points throughout the broadcast — not in a partisan manner for Clinton, but for the sake of the town hall’s television optics. Approximately 15 minutes before the show, the producer ran the audience through a practice round of applause and noise-making.

Surprising? No, not very:
