You mean like when you get caught doing a DL, do a KM move to get out of it and say "I wasn't using 2 cards". That kind of lie? We all do it, it's no big deal.
I get where you are coming from. One of the reasons I don't like Criss doing camera tricks, is simply because I don't like him (which has a lot to do with his last Halloween episode. Since then, I've lost basically all respect for him). If it was someone else, I probably wouldn't mind. Because for tv, magic has some exceptions. It actually has a lot of exceptions, and using the camera to ones advantage, is one of those exceptions.
I personally have no problem with David Blaine, David Copperfield, or the cast of the World's Greatest Magicians, using camera's to their advantage, and using camera tricks. I don't think most people do. But with Criss Angel, it becomes different, which it shouldn't. It's just because people don't like him, some of it for good reasons (I liked, and defended him up until his Halloween special). Others for stupid reasons, like they are jealous. So I think that has a lot to do with why people don't like his camera tricks.
I kind of went on a rant there, but you do make a great point. And I think if more people were actually truly honest with themselves, they'd have to say that the reason they don't like Criss doing camera tricks, is because they simply don't like him. Which is why I don't like him doing camera tricks. I simply don't like him.
