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?
Other examples of fauxtography.
But it only makes the YukYuk Channel when Fox does it.
I am not defending Fox News and do not find them to be a “conservative news network”. They are to the right of CNN. CNN US is to the right of CNN International. Sense of scale does not make them “right wing” in news coverage regardless of the “other programming”.
Bachmann's crowd was in excess of 12,000. There is no need to exaggerate.
Someone needs to be fired.
