Practice the rules of B-roll. Patience and speed are both required. Find your shot, get a spec composition, set iris and shutter if that is on, and finalize your composition. then roll up.
As for the windowing, that refers to the portion it looks to to set its mark, and so there is no one corner of the camera you should be exposing to. It will change constantly and changing that window everytime will take much longer than using the dial exposure.
If you are shooting news then your bar is set low already. The quality of footage we get out of national is crap. Like they dont even care if the shot is right, as long as its somehow on tape and halfway recognizable. You have a chance to set yourself apart. or not.
