Do you mean, not moving the camera up until later in the shot?

Why report the news when you can make the news up?
wow, and we all beleive everything Huffington report has to say? Well, not all of us, those who have any reasoning power know most of what appears there is questionable to say the least...Any totally left or right wing publication is slanted so badly it isn't worth wasting time reading.

I'd love to see a link on this? That would be rather amazing if they actually said this.

Sure thing. The footage fell off the shelf and landed in the clip.

And yet Fox apologists don't have the nads to call them out for this crap.

I hesitate using the word "stupid". I prefer to say they are "lacking ordinary quickness and keenness of mind". Ooops! That's the definition, how stupid of me.

I have seen Fox, CNN etc... mess up by showing the wrong video a few times in the past couple months. T.
I can see a commentator and a clip not being in sync. That can certainly happen.

But when footage is doctored to show larger crowds than actually were there, such as was the case in the Bachmann Tea Party clip, and the subsequent text bloats the turnout numbers, it's a freaking walking, talking, quacking duck.

Now amount of Fox polish can shine that turd.

when a TV station claims to be "news" and "claims to be "fair and balanced" changing the channel when you don't like it is not enough. Surely you don't think it is ok to lie and call it news, even if it fits your agenda. do you?

how many times are we expected to believe this kind of thing is an honest mistake?
