Tally is supposedly in the prison with one camera, yet shots beamed live from her include shots of her camera crew holding a camera. In addition we see cutting of shots between Tally and Fernando as if there were two cameras there.

When sheltering from the thunderstorm, Warren's hair and clothes are wet unless the shot is a closeup.

Factual errors 

When the film was made, in 1996, the idea that a TV crew inside a prison could beam images from a 'portable' transmit unit (let alone return audio to the journalist from the TV truck), was pure imagination. Even modern-day portable units cannot break through concrete and steel - especially the amount that one would find in a prison.

Tally, said to be reporting for WFIL, holds a Channel 7 microphone. WFIL was actually Channel 6. (Note: WFIL's call letter subsequently changed to WPVI, still channel 6 in Philadelphia.)

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

After the party where Tally finds out Warren is dead, Tally and Warren's ex-wife are at the airport where the casket is brought (they're both in dark colored tailored suits). Right after that, we see a scene with Tally and Ned, where they are wearing the same clothes that they were wearing at the party, while Tally sits at a desk in her apartment.
