Can someone flesh out the “record” of what was done?
Footage from one rally was used I gather for coverage of crowd reponse at another one.
This is unethical, I agree.
What did it do? Make it appear that there were more people? Less people? Or just different people?
Was VH1/CBS/Viacom/Sony overdubbing the boos Sen. Hillary Clinton received from the NYPD and NYFD with cheers at the Concert for NYC a lesser, on par, or greater bit of media manipulation (consider that the undoctored footage aired one time live and subsequently reran numerous times in full rebroadcast and DVD release)?
PS Viacom pwns Comedy Central
That is much worse, because it was a deliberate attempt to falsify the record.
Fox simply showed the wrong file footage during their discussion of the event. It happens a lot, and they apologized for it.
