    Okay, so while there are video experts who say the clip was doctored, Buzzfeed has a plausible narrative that argues the video was altered, but perhaps not intentionally "doctored."

    The InfoWars guy says he got the close up from a GIF, apparently. GIFs use a frame reduction technique that has the unintended effect of slightly speeding up the video.

    That could also explain the drop in audio. And at that point it isn't a stretch to think it was unintentional to lose the microphone as a point of context.

    Problem is, the guy who tweeted it is a historically unreliable narrator. Just today, he tweeted, then deleted, that the Thousand Oaks shooter was of middle eastern descent.

    So perhaps there is a reasonable explanation and both sides are right. It was manipulated, but not intentionally to mislead.

    I can't believe the president of The US would use Info Wars as his source.

    Obviously this really happened so there should be plenty of other sources.

    With even the most basic GIF editing software, you can drop as many or as few (or no) frames at all and adjust the speed as fast or slow (or normal) as you want. At that point once the GIF is created, typically someone slotting it into a "normal" video clip can't further mess with the clip without really screwing up the quality.

    The thing is, with most basic video editing software, you don't need to drop in a GIF clip, you can select whatever piece of video to change the speed, magnify, repeat/loop or whatever other effects you want to do with that bit of the clip. So the excuse that someone got a specific bit of a video from a shitty GIF to drop into the *same* clip makes little sense, but wtf do I know.

    Jesus, I bet this will be the lead story on the World News tonight despite all the other shit going on today.

    Does it matter? - choose whatever video you like. Both show Acosta's arm deflecting the intern's attempt to grab the mic. Is that assault? - not to me. The guy is a jack ass and almost getting into a tugging match over a microphone shoes the silliness of these theatrics.

    Trump's trolling them all, driving them all crazy.

    Case in point. Barbara Steisand admits that she is so obsessed w Trump that she can't even sleep at night. Lol
    She's a basket case. The MSM and Hollywood communists in America hate Trump.

    "Acost Her". LOL. Either way, he can go back to fake-newsing his way through life from somewhere else but the WH. This incident was simply the last straw for him.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    If Babs Streisand hates a liar I guess she never saw or heard Obama and this mother of all lies. Too bad the Rs left town on this too.

    That was actually reported to officials by someone who was in the bar.

    He probably just saw that and didn't verify before he tweeted, which is one of the problems with our instant news.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    That was a today example, but are we really going to quibble over whether or not InfoWars is a reliable source of truth?

    They get some things right. And they're full of shit on others.

    That said the MSM doesn't bat 1,000 either.

    Best to be skeptical of all of 'em in my estimation.
