C-SPAN is publishing inaccurate transcripts of President Donald Trumps remarks during the vitally important national coronavirus task force daily briefings.
So Trump is being falsely attacked for what Trump never said (again). The worst of it, lately, is Trump asking questions to scientists. Those questions have been transformed into statements that Trump never made. But as I endeavored to clear up the fog, I was shocked to discover that C-SPANs textual transcript are the source of the confusion. The quotes that Trump haters are throwing around happen to be accurate reports of the inaccurate C-SPAN transcript.
Not everyone knows that www.C-SPAN.org preserves a repository of video records of newsworthy events. Not only can people watch events live on cable TV through C-SPAN, but if you missed it live, or want to study an event again, videos are available for viewing going back probably to 1995, searchable of course.
Those inside the political loop know this. Journalists are well, in a hurry, shall we say. And news outlets are hurting financially. So when C-SPAN offers a textual transcript of the video, it is tempting when throwing together a newspaper article or television news script to simply lift the text transcript off the left-hand side of the screen at www.C-SPAN.org. Why watch the actual video record? Its so much faster in a rush to just use the cheat sheet version from C-SPAN.

The Deep State is huge....
So the rats have even corrupted c-span.
“This transcript was compiled from uncorrected Closed Captioning.”
Closed captioning is usually quite rough, with mistakes and bits left out.
Yeah, their ability to simply broadcast what was happening vs editorialize is their value. Incorrectly transcribing these broadcasts, purposely or not, instantly drops their credibility.
The long march through the institutions.
Hildabeast called all leftist fedgov employees into action with that hashtag.
Appears to be true, this would not have happened when Brian Lamb was running it.
C-Span has been left leaning since I can remember, which is better than 40 years.
Follow the money. Who is the biggest contributor to C-SPAN? ComCrap.
And news outlets are hurting financially.
Self induced stupidity and TDS causes it.
Partisan Media Shills update.
Note that CSpan is not a government operation. Its run by the same lying lamestream media as the networks, et al.
C-SPAN also allows much more airtime to liberal RAT callers and often cuts off conservative voices during their Washington Journal shows, etc.
