Sarah Sanders re-Tweets FAKED Jim Acosta video from InfoWars.

Quote:
Sarah Sanders, shared an altered video of the physical interaction between CNN's Jim Acosta and a White House intern during a contentious briefing on Wednesday.

The altered version shared by Sanders is of C-Span's footage of the briefing. During the question and answer session with the president a White House intern tried to physically remove the microphone from Acosta's hand.

The apparently altered version of C-Span's broadcast that was shared by the White House Press Secretary originally appeared on Info Wars' Paul Joseph Watson's Twitter account. InfoWars is an alt-right conspiracy theorist website and radio show.

CNN's Brian Stelter took to Twitter questioning Sanders' source for the video, pressing 'Where'd you obtain the distorted @Acosta video you posted? InfoWars personality @PrisonPlanet (Paul Joseph Watson's account) posted the same video
two hours before you did. Surely you don't trust InfoWars...?'

These White House dirtbags are shameless.

I’m confused. I watched both videos. One shows what he did clearly looping the splice of his arm “chopping” across hers. Clearly a loop of the same scene.

Then I watched the full version and it’s the same chop. Just not repeating it/ or rather looping that section.

I would not put this in the same league as the media showcasing a 6 year younger Trayvon martin or nbc editing the 911 call made during the same incident.

This is simply a loop of what actually happened. They could have shown it in slow motion. Is that editing, yes. But it’s not changing what happened it’s simply highlighting what actually happened.

Maybe I missed something in the video?

Not sure about it being sped up. I downloaded the original and looped just that section in premiere pro and it’s identical to the tweeted version. You can tell by the actual frame rate and the looped time. If it was sped up the frame rate increases (or in layman’s terms it would take less time for his arm to move from where it was to where he chopped hers.

Petep, you can't reason with irrational people. Acosta should be banned from the White House permanently for making any physical contact with a White House staffer or intern doing their job.
