    Trump derangement syndrome is very, very real.

    Side-by-side comparisons support claims from fact-checkers and experts such as Jonathan Albright, research director of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University, who argued that crucial parts of the video appear to have been altered so as to distort the action.
    Audio was also doctored.

    Following a lengthy back-and-forth, a White House intern tried to take the microphone from Acosta, who held onto it. “Pardon me, ma’am,” Acosta said in the original video, though the audio was stripped from the edited version.

    Awesome. It's still not doctored in any meaningful way.

    But here's the thing: EVEN IF IT WAS DOCTORED, calling the DOCTORED ACTION a karate chop is still insane. The supposed doctoring (which didn't happen) doesn't even help their case.

    Oh, I definitely don't disagree with this.

    You don't need to know physics of the video to find out that it was edited. Just track the motion of the background. You will find irregularities. There are free software online for this.

    The White House OFFICIAL ACCOUNT should use original version. Not edited one.

    And fuck Trump derangement syndrome. Trump, Obama or anyone else. Keep your bullshit to yourself. Don't mess with people's minds. Also, last night was about Sessions... And media was talking about fucking Acosta. Brilliant.

    Suppose CSPAN has "Trump Derangement Syndrome" as well?


    And of course Sanders hasn't even mentioned the shooting ... because why would she.

    First, to be clear: my Trump derangement syndrome comment wasn't referring to anyone in this thread - it was to the people who's tweets were being quoted.

    As for C-SPAN - I'd like to hear exactly what they say was 'doctored'. In the first video Nilanka posted, there was a red transparency overlay. That might have been 'doctored'. But that itself does little-to-nothing to change the impact of what you're seeing, and is pointless to talk about, imo. The key issue is was the speed of the action changed, and I still don't see it.

    Now: the audio might have been changed. That wasn't what I was replying to/commenting on, nor was it mentioned in the first tweet Nilanka posted.

    Ya, I was just being a confrontational dink with that post. All good my man! Lol

    Ya, I was super tempted to call them myself just to see. They could for sure just be seeing the "filter" and saying "Yep! Now leave us alone" Lol

    I just compared the speed of the 'chop' in WH released clip, vs. the ABC clip in some editing software. They're identical. But hey, believe what you want.

    Edit: I took a closer look at a different part, there was a minute difference between the two at that moment. But to claim that difference would make a tangible difference in the way they'd be perceived is pretty disingenuous, IMO.

    Show me the motion of the background of WH released clip and ABC clip in a point-to-point graphs.

    I'm pretty sure you will find irregularities. And both graphs will look different.

    Far-right extremists and far-left extremists are dangerous. Government needs to take action against domestic terrorists and silly anarchists.

    Ignoring the fact that he used the word "insidious", this pretty much concludes things:



    Pretty silly and ridiculous, but then, so is that administration ... sooo ... yep.

    Remember Sean Spicer? Man, never thought we'd see the day when he seemed like the better option. There's just something about Sarah Sanders that really grinds my gears.

    TL;DR - They deleted 3 frames which showed the interns arms bumping Acosta's arm first as he was gesturing.

    If it as described, then that's fucked up. Lock em up or hold the organizers accountable.

    May as well get technical: they didn't delete three frames; they repeated three frames. Which goes to my original point: the video was NOT sped up, in any sense. Which should have been immediately clear to anyone who works professionally with video.
