To: a fool in paradise
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)?
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.
Viacom had a reason to boost Hillary’s prestige. They paid $8million in advance for her autobiography (which at that point, had not gone to press).
