TVs cast many illusions.
TV isnt really a "moving picture", rather its an optical illusion where we see a series of still images that trick our minds into thinking we are seeing motion. But movement is not the only illusion we see. Put a person in a suit and you have the Illusion of Authority. I suspect by having a person with a Brit / Aussie accent speak, they are casting the Illusion of Credibility.
If they wanted to present a realistic image of themselves, they ought to have a couple of rednecks read the news dressed up to the hilt in full redneck attire, and have them named Daryl, his brother Daryl, and his other brother Daryl, full on hillbilly accent and vulgaries included.
