Vercher pointed out that a possible solution to the problem may already exist.
“We do this all the time when we cover big events like big debates or conventions. Not everyone can sit in that little, small space so some of us are in a ‘virtual room’ where we can pose our questions remotely and it works just fine.” Vercher suggested.
