For anyone who's never watched David perform in his inorganic meatsuit, this week's PBS News Hour is particularly illustrative:

The most insightful moments into Brooks are when he is not talking. Other than a brief glance near the beginning, he never breaks from either looking down at the desk/papers in front of him or mercilessly staring into the soul of the anchor. I don't think the virtual Jonathan Capehart instance is a green screen, I think it's an actual TV. And he pointedly won't look at it. There's no need to psychoanalyze his gestures or speech, because this guy is already clearly the mayor of Uncanny Valley. Chuck E. Cheese animatronic-tier weird.
