Agreed they are guilty of laziness, at least. But since both rallies were well attended, what would FNC intentions be by using the wrong footage?
Trying to inflate the crowd size.
It doesn't matter what the intentions are; it's fraud, because they strongly implied that it was today's events when it was actually a month or so earlier.
The fact that they said "earlier" on the tape is insufficient, because it implies "earlier that day".
Just hand them a stick to beat you with, Fox. Why can't the leader be better than the rest?
I really doubt that this was a concerted effort by Fox.
It may be the product of one liberal film editor.
Fake but accurate?
