It kind of looks like it's a different guy in the shorts and sandals, maybe?
Right before the cut, it looks like two people beyond the sign. But it doesn't look like anyone with black pants. I'm wondering if that one or even two are different people?

I wouldn't put it past them, but I'm not going to jump on the bandwagon until there's a bit more clarity.

I throw this in the, "hmmmmmm" category for now.

<sigh>
Some of these conservative tin-foil hat sites leave one breath taken at the sheer lack of common sense. The man they identified as the CNN correspondent in the khakis and sandals is not the same guy. He was already over there.

When you watch the correspondent running over, the guy would have to be Usain Bolt to get to that location before the alleged video cut and splice.

I think all "news" should be viewed with a similar level of skepticism, though. I think everything someone you don't know says to you should be scrutinized to some degree before being taken as gospel.

One of the benefits of the current administration, in addition to more concern about executive overreach. Hopefully people take these lessons to heart.

Probably wont...

Don't claim it to be true, but are we seriously thinking this is beyond CNN's capability (i.e. staging a scene)?

Where is the other guy where an identical red wind breaker hoodie then? He is all of a sudden out of frame now?

May be a CNN issue jacket, so they would all be wearing the same one. But the camera work is definitely questionable. I just don't think it's the same guy. Hard to tell. CNN and the rest certainly aren't beyond something like that (seeing the staged protest scene they did on deserted streets) ...so there I was...

Nothing is outside the realm of possibility. But is it probable, no.

The latest link you've posted, the person who titled it has confused
"staging a protest" with arranging protestors in a group to get the interview and backing shot. Commonly known as pick-up shots for inserts in a newscast. Happens all the time.

you are all fucking wrong. hatch stop buying into every right wing conspiracy bullshit there is. yes cnn bunch fucking whiny lying faggots, but not as much as the right says.

heist, are you retarded? he isn't Hussein bolt, no one has to be Hussein bolt to jog 50 yards. the truck was casually drifting along in a fucking ditch.

that dude wouldn't have died, and I think it may have been a set up, BUT, the fucking reporter wasn't wearing shorts. he was in boots and pants from the get go. he sprinted off the left of the cameras field of vision, the dude in the back in shorts is just some other motherfucker. the entire conspiracy is predicated upon him being that dude, but hes not. the reporter sprints over to the truck, there is sizable distance between the camera and the ditch of water, and the truck was moving, he didn't sprint in a straight line all the way to the bank, and then turn left. this isn't fucking tron.

You do realize this is exactly what I wrote, right?

Whether "everyone does it" or "it happens all the time" doesn't justify the practice. As the camera pans, you see more producer/crew types than protesters in the vicinity. I spotted one guy who might be another protester off to the side, but the place is quiet and empty. The pick-up shot is a total sham. What did they do, take people a mile away from the actual protest to shoot this? Where is the sound of a nearby milling crowd? These kinds of practices are why the news is a bunch of crap. They purposely use deceptive images to establish their version of the story. They aren't committed to facts. They are committed to a story that sells. I trust stupid vertically shot, grainy, blown-out audio cellphone video way more than any piece from a major network.

24 hour TV "news" cycle versus Internet "news" Story at 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12...


Lots of staged shots. Lots of things blown out of proportion. Lots of political agendas. Lots of money to be made or lost. Lots of BS.

Honestly, I don't believe this clip was set-up.

When you have camera crews recording shyt 24/7 you're bound to get something a little unusual once in awhile. I seriously doubt the news crew would get the budget to trash a fairly new truck for a BS story no one will care about in 12 hours.

Looks like the original clip was a spur of the moment thing and would have been way too long in it's entirety. They likely cut a bunch of it simply to make it shorter.

When faced with competing stories of "what really happened." I tend to look for the more probable explanation. No way do I think they paid out 20-30K for a truck to make that crappy shot.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

The protest ended already. They were just getting contextual post protest interviews after the end of the protest.

It's very difficult to get good audio and have a question and answer session in the middle of the wall of people screaming and yelling during a protest.


Do you get equally out raged when sportscasters do interviews with a group of players or fans after the end of the game?
You see these players all suited up and yet there is no one in the stands in the background. Are the sportscasters and network putting on a sham? Was the game not played?

Sure I would if they are telling me in the video that the game is still going, score is tied, it's two outs, and bottom of the ninth when in fact the game is over and was never even close.

The news agencies aren't doing these shots for the interviews. They aren't capturing the events as they happen. They are staging scenes to deliberately represent their particular version of the events, because that particular version sells the most airtime.

Normally you can analogize pretty well...this one sucks though.

They faked it, and khaki shorts was supposed to remain behind that sign, out of sight. They got an already flood-damaged truck, paid some schlep to toss it into what's obviously a ditch, and well, there you have, um... and here's the tricky part. It's not even interesting to watch. Why even bother? Really, really weak tea from the fake news desks of the clown news network.
