"Booing" of Hillary Clinton Electronically Transformed into "Applause" for TV Viewers!
Media Research Center - Cyber ALERT! (Media Bias; Pro-Liberal & Pro-Facist) ^ | Friday August 30, 2002 (Vol. Seven; No. 133) | Editorial Staff

A holiday weekend video treat: How cable music channel VH1 turned booing of Senator Hillary Clinton into cheering.

Senator Clinton was booed when she walked on stage last October at a rock concert in Madison Square Garden to benefit 9/11 victims. It was shown live by VH1 but, as ABC's John Stossel illustrated in a July 20/20 special on media distortions, when the Viacom-owned cable channel replayed it sound technicians replaced the booing with cheering and applause. And that version is the permanent record VH1 put onto its DVD of the event.

During his July 12 20/20 look at media manipulation and distortions, Stossel used the Hillary Clinton incident as his first example.

Earlier this summer, ABC's John Stossel showed how VH1 last year replaced booing of Hillary Clinton with applause

Stossel explained: “Last fall Paul McCartney headlined a concert to benefit victims of September 11th. Some politicians appeared, including Senator Hillary Clinton.” Over the booing of Senator Clinton as she walked on stage and waved, Stossel noted: “And people in the audience booed her. Booed and heckled.”

Stossel told viewers: “But then MTV's channel VH1 re-ran the same concert and made it into a DVD.” As 20/20 showed the same scene again, but this time VH1's new version with applause, Stossel pointed out: “Notice a difference? The booing has been removed. Now and forever on the DVD the crowd applauds Senator Clinton.”

The MRC's Mez Djouadi has posted a RealPlayer clip of what Stossel showed. To watch it, go to the posted version of this CyberAlert: POSTED VERSION.

A useful thing about DVDs is that they easily fit in our garbage cans.

So should MTV/VH1. But then, most people already know that.

AMAZING!

Not the term that I would apply. Disgusting, is appropriate. Total lack of integrity, would be technically correct. But, after all, typical of our Leftist dominated entertainment industry.

My advice: get this story posted on Slashdot.org ASAP to get the word out. They have 250,000 viewers. They'll eat something like this up.

Nothing new, really. Stalin's people were doctoring photos 50+ years ago. Same exact thing.

This story is old, If they dont know by now they never will. Could you imagine MTV of VH1 replaceing "boos" with "cheers" for a Republican Senator, if anything they would amplify the "boos"

Doesn't this constitute an "in-kind" contribution to a political whore? I am not a lawyer but should this at least seems it should be reported on her annual finance information forms to whatever office is supposed to receive notice of political donations or gifts. Also, if there is an enterprising conservative legal scholar, why not file a complaint with FEC for corporate donations to a political whore which I thought was illegal. Oh, well, just a thought.

I remember watching a satellite feed where some editor dubbed out Clinton's little laugh when he said, "I'm just trying to control my, hehe, sexual impulses." They knew he sounded sleazy, so they dubbed it out before my very eyes. And that was for news broadcasts.

The first thing I thought of was the movie "Victory" with Sylvester Stallone about a soccer team of Allied POWs being made to play the Nazis for a PR stunt. They were playing in Paris, and the Nazi commentator had a small box where he would crank the knob to try to make listeners believe the French were cheering when the Germans scored a goal.

Anyone expecting the truth from TV is but a moron. In fact, given TV's jurisdiction over viewers, it should be forbidden by the FCC, to misrepresent actual events.

These are truly unashamed proselytist cult Nazi tactics. These people are nuts and paranoid to think America is going to sink if we hear that whore being booed.

Maybe MTV/VH1 will release an unedited version later on. Then, let the market decide on which one they like better.

The thing is- we know she got booed. But will people a hundred years from now or even the next generation? Shades of 1984. Orwell may have been a socialist but at least he understood the nature of his ideological beast. I can't help but wonder if the person that did the editing even thought of Winston Smith while he was rewriting history?

Never forget how the media giants got huge favors and lots of cash from the Clinton admin. Thats the first thing they did when they got into office, buy off the media giants. All dictators know the most important thing in politics is to control the media. Look at Al-Gee-Sear-Your-Mind and Pravda for proof. Thats why I stick with the Bible when I need a dose of truth. This self-serving idiots can't touch it.

I don't know about this being an old story. All I could find on the web about this was that VH-1 replaced the booing with "crowd noise". I looked it up after one Freeper mentioned the cheering substitution part. That post was the only place I saw it mentioned so I was waiting for verification before I mentioned it.

Does anyone have videotape from the original broadcast? Perhaps we can find a way to circulate that.

This is kinda old news. We talked about it here months ago. I saw the original and really wanted a tape of it--I should've recorded it that night-- but when I heard what they did they lost a sale. Fox News played the altered clip a bunch back then.

Didn't the original mpeg circulate all around the internet? If we go back to the date in the archives of FR, perhaps some of the links are still active. <p<

Heck, maybe this would even make for an interesting website. Show the real one, then the doctored one.

No wonder they call him Summer RedStoned. Summer, you can't take it with you, and you'll be forgotten as soon as your dead. In other words, without Christ and integrity, your a LOSER FOREEVER. Wake up from your delusional self importance, only what you do for Christ and your fellow man will have ANY lasting impact.

This kind of thing was really popular in the USSR under Stalin

Left: A meeting of the St. Petersburg Union of Struggle for the Liberation of the Working Class in February 1897.

Right: The man standing on the left in the original, Alexander Malchenko, has been removed from this version published in 1939. He had been executed on 18 November 1930 but was 'rehabilitated' in 1958, at which point his presence was allowed to reappear.

Did they digitially edit the boos that Richard Gere got at the same event. I'd bet my bottom dollar that they did or they probably just deleted the whole segment because he got booed off the stage.

I just did a Google search, and I can't find it. It's like it disappeared off the Net. In light of the clear attempt to rewrite history, maybe keeping a before and after in a prominent place is called for. Lest we forget.

This is truly outrageous. We all knew of this long ago-but I never knew they had replaced the booing with cheering. Thta is incredibly fraudulent. Wonder who owns Viacom. I feel an urge to email the liar.

I grew up with MTV. I now have young daughters and neither MTV or VH1 is allowed. The media has simply goten to big for its britches and needs to be taken down a notch or maybe a dozen. If not illegal, falsifying historical records or documents (even if its just entertainment)is immoral to say the least.

I know- I can't find it either! I have gone through about 8 or 9 of the threads on FR that came up on that day. I clicked on all the links I could find and they are all dead now.-

Wait a minute. Rush played an audio of her getting booed! I remember it as clear as day. What a great item this would be for his show on Monday morning.

It is really interesting that this is happening after his show is done for the week. Maybe we should get as many FReepers as we can to get Rush to replay it. I think that there were some other national conservatives that aired it also. There must be files of this all over the place.

A long time ago, in the 1930's, my grandparents would listen to stories about news propoganda in Germany from a man named Joseph Goebels and they said, "How sad for those people that they should hear such stories." How sad for those people...

That should be illegal. Can't somebody bring legal action against them?

I bet there'd be some copyright issues on that...

I know Matt Drudge has it- he played it about a dozen times on one his radio shows. Matter of fact, I think I have that file somewhere on my hard drive.
