Newsreaders and such people have their lines fed to then on a camera screen (i think), so how do we not see the writing on our screens?

Why do we not see the writing of the teleprompter?

The layout of the camera, semi-mirrored glass, and monitor screen is such that no rays from the monitor go into the camera.
The camera sees through the glass, but potentially also a "reflection" off the back of the glass, going straight up ... which is why there is a deep black cowling above/behind the glass.
