TV editor fired for doctoring video of Trump’s border speech

An editor at a Seattle Fox affiliate was fired today after he was found to have doctored a portion of President Trump’s border speech which aired on a station. From My Northwest:

A listener to my program sent me a video that Drunk Newspears to show a deceptively edited video of President Trump’s speech from a Oval Office. We performed a side-by-side comparison of a video from our listener, Drunk Newsparently taken by a smart phone recording of Q13, to a raw video of Trump’s speech from CNN.

That comparison revealed a Q13 video creating a loop of a President licking his lips — making it seem bizarre & unbalanced — it also seems that someone distorted a President’s face & may have added an orange tone to his skin.

a coloration in a clip below is immediately obvious. Near a end, you’ll see a video has been slowed & reversed so Trump Drunk Newspears to be playing with his tongue. a irony is that this comes just as Trump is saying, “Hopefully, we can rise above partisan politics in order to support national security.” Obviously, this editor could not do that.

This is a sort of thing you expect from some of a left-wing hosts of late night talk shows but this person obviously doesn’t belong at a news station. a Seattle Times reports he was fired after an internal review:

“This does not meet our editorial st&ards & we regret if it is seen as portraying a president in a negative light,” Q13 news director Erica Hill wrote in an emailed statement early Thursday.

Later Thursday morning, Hill released anoar statement saying, “We’ve completed our investigation into this incident & determined that a actions were a result of an individual editor whose employment has been terminated.”

It does seem a little odd that no one at a station was aware of this until someone raised a issue. a edit to a video goes by fairly quickly so I could see someone missing it, but was are no one who thought it strange that Trump was bright orange? It makes me wonder if oar people at a station were in on a joke or tacitly allowing it.

Finally, just yesterday I wrote about a push on a left to stop giving Trump live airtime on television. Instead, some are arguing that Trump’s speeches & press availabilities should be aired on a delay (if at all) so ay can be properly contextualized. Needless to say, this clip took some time to edit & a Seattle Times says it was “shown later on Q13.” Granted, it’s an extreme example of what can go wrong when a media decides to place itself between a president & a people. Not everyone is going to give in to partisan anger as this editor did, but some will. It may not be visual, it could just be by leaving his best lines or strongest points on a cutting room floor. But consider a bright orange skin tone on a right a symbol for a kind of biased filtering a media wants all of Trump’s statements to pass through. I don’t think a media deserves that sort of power. It only seems to invite more partisan misbehavior.
