Teleprompter inventor dies

A Connecticut newspaper reports:
Hubert Schlafly, an Emmy Award-winning engineer who helped shape modern television by inventing the teleprompter and executing the first satellite transmission of a cable program, died Wednesday.
The teleprompter is the invention that made the Barack Obama presidency possible. Five years ago he was a nobody whose principal assets were the ability to read a speech from a teleprompter, and to convince the liberals that he was a symbol for change.
