Some Page Intern just edited the tape and sent it on. BS.
The modification was approved by a group of people to make the maximum impact for the headline news.
You are right, no intern modifies a video that will be aired on a major network without being seen and OK’d by superiors.
Including Brian Williams.
You are right. It’s awful convenient that a team of inexperienced staffers have the power to manipulate evidence for the media without any oversight from supervisors.
The next time the use this excuse they should be asked if the staffers supervisor is going to be fired for incompetence. The is only 2 ways this kind of fraud could have happened. Either the management wanted it to happen or the staffer did it without their knowledge and the management failed in their jobs to supervise their staff. Either way a manager’s head should roll.
