goldfishing
 n.— «The day I am in the studio, the report on the opposition’s activities features just one politician talking in an interview. But you don’t hear his words. He is, in TV parlance, goldfishing: you can see his lips move but only hear the reporter’s words. The report on Mr Berlusconi’s day has a rather long clip of him speaking.» —“Clown Prince of bloggers takes on Italian politics” by Mark Mardell BBC News Apr. 14, 2008.
