I am sure no one will be surprised to learn that the doctored video posted by Sarah Huckabee Sanders came from that fat fuck Alex Jones.

It did.

There should have been a boycott a long time ago. The press basically is enabling him to do this.


No one will stand up for the freedom of the American press if its journalists won’t stand up for each other and walk out of these ritual degradations called press conferences, where questions are only ever answered by lies and intimidation.

My god, the disgusting pig Sarah Sanders retweeted a fucking DOCTORED video that makes the interaction look violent. This administration is beyond the pale. Fuck everyone of these criminals.

I don't think you or those with your views ever watched it to begin with, so boycott all you want. It won't amount to a hill of beans.

People like that aren't going to change.

The better strategy is to get those vaping, beard-having, music-stealing, carpal-tunnel-developing Millenials to vote. I think that's easier than trying to change the minds of people like SuperFurryAnimal.

On a related note, how many times do y'all think Trump has boinked that intern who tried to take the microphone away from Acosta?

I'm guessing Trump has cheated on his wife with that gullible young lady at least 10 times.

Watch the video with the sound off and watch the interaction between the intern and Trump. Specifically, watch what Trump does to make the intern squat. Yikes, it's like she's a sex slave or something.

Zooming in is not "doctoring".

There are many videos available, from multiple angles. They all show the same thing that Watson's does.

No.

This is your thing.
You insist I prove something, call me names, claim I'm lying, badger & bully.
I post whatever proof you've demanded, and you ignore it.
You don't apologize, you don't walk back your bullshit. You just pretend it all never happened.
It's happened again and again. You talk shit then pussy out when I comply with your demands.

So, no.

Zooming is not doctoring.

Okay, so I TTOT (troll trump on twitter), because it's where I can voice my discontent with the current administration, as well as calling Congressional members. But there is this now:


Andrea Mitchell reports that trump's WH Briefing confrontation with ace reporter Jim Acosta was planned by trump a distraction from the news of the day; "Dems flip the House". Quoting trump aides who laughed with each other, prior to the briefing, "This is going to be fun."

Actually, DJ, digital experts are saying that it has been doctored or at the very least was due to compression, becase Watson stated he created the video from a gif:


https://www.newyorker.com...al_twitter



I e-mailed Hany Farid, an expert in digital-image forensics, to ask him whether the video had been altered. He replied with the results of his analysis. Parts of the video, he wrote, had been slowed down compared to the clip that aired on television. It was also blurrier. The loops had been added. Finally, there were a few repeated frames, which occurred just at the moment Acosta’s hand touched the intern’s arm. In a conversation with BuzzFeed, Watson denied deliberately slowing down, speeding up, or blurring the video; instead, he said, he’d simply downloaded an animated gif image from the Twitter account of DailyWire.com. Farid confirmed that the repeated frames, the blurriness, and the slowdown, which helped “make the video more dramatic,” could all have been unintended results of “transcoding” the video, or converting it into and out of the gif format.

A bigger issue, Farid pointed out, was non-technical: the camera angle. “If you look at original, higher-quality videos from other vantage points,” he wrote, “you can more clearly see that while there was some contact between the reporter and intern, he did not strike her as his hand comes down.” The perspective, coupled with the blurriness of the image—which makes it hard to discern where Acosta’s hand ends and the intern’s arm begins—create the impression that their contact was more substantive than it was. Farid concluded that the video Sanders shared was “misleading.” At the same time, he wrote, “I don’t see unambiguous evidence that it has been doctored.”

That's a move right out of Adolf Hitler's playbook. You seem pretty excited about that, what with the giant red font and double exclamation points.

A. It was not assault. Touching another person in itself is not assault. Jim put his hand out and would not give up the mic or if the WH staffer touched Jim trying to take away the mic was not an assault. Not assault.

B. Acosta cries about people yelling "CNN Sucks" at Trump rallies and they are free to do so. They make it out to be an ATTACK ON THE PRESS! ZERO SYMPATHY OR FUCKS GIVEN. NO ASSAULT ON EITHER SIDE.

C. The video they are pissed at that slowed down from infowars was not doctored it was slowed down. They just hate the source.

D. He should be ejected for making a mockery of the press conference. His First Amendment Rights were not violated by not having access to TRUMP!

E. OBAMA HAD EJECTED FOX NEWS REPORTER! FOR DOING SAME SHIT!

I just saw a clip of that and it's totally scary on multiple levels. In the back of my mind, I wonder if he finagled with the votes somehow. I also worry about someone who is so vindictive having the power of the presidency.

Zooming in and slowed down. CNN and most news outlets do it all the time. Clearly when watching the slowed down video of the altercation, no assault happened but also Asosta and some other reporters are not there just to ask questions but start trouble. Asosta started out by stating “Thank you, Mr. President. I wanted to challenge you on one of the statements you made during the campaign.”. No he is not there as a journalist to challenge the President but ask a question then hope the President aswers. Trump is right in saying Acosta is rude. He is only there to disrupt.
