[Nelson Goforth] "since the picture from the broadcast cameras is already tightly controlled by engineers, can't the image be trusted through the edit without the need for further critical monitoring?"

Well, typically even the best footage is shot flat in order to provide the most dynamic range for manipulating images in post. But, beyond that Nelson is the need to be able to monitor fields-related issues, motion artifacts, etc., which always crop up during up and down-conversions, and when mixing SD and HD material. Fields are not properly displayed on computer monitors, and it's not at all uncommon for unwary or new editors to cut entire projects using nothing but their built-in laptop monitor or on a tower with their computer monitor, only to find at the very conclusion of editing that they have an entire hodge podge of problems with fields, interlace lines, and motion artifacts.

I could go on and on... There are a litany of problems that improper monitoring will hide from the editor.
