A T.V. videographer. Named so by press still photographers for their willingness to take creative liberties with journalism, i.e. having people do things and act a certain way just for the camera. The results of their actions are not journalism, just acting performed for free by unknowing subjects under the pretense of news.
I was standing with the other photojournalists at the political rally taking photos of people acting naturally, and then the video monkeys had to come in, egg on the crowd, and have them fake-cheer for the camera.
