I've decided that I want them to rip off Hush/the usual suspects and in the end you find out Mr. Mime is the mastermind.

Neo also clarified it yesterday.
http://herochat.com/index.php?topic=16572.msg381592#msg381592

What Neo said was that any speed discrepancy wasn't do to transfer between file format. I appreciate his input as this isn't something I have any experience with. The theory I heard seemed plausible, but I trust Neo on this more than an online theory. As a layman in terms of digital video, I don't really consider uniformly sped up footage to be "doctored." When I, as a video novice, hear "doctored", I think altered frames, multiple shifts in speed, CGI editing, etc. More on this below.

What additional information are you going to need? It honestly seems like you're looking for an out or something.

I don't "need an out" because, frankly, I don't take this as personally as some people seem to. My work blocks Herochat (thanks, Thorne), so during the work week my Herochatting is mostly limited to my phone, which keeps my answers somewhat brief, and may cause me to misread a post, if I read it quickly. For example, I did not get the impression that your post was saying the footage was both sped up AND slowed down at key points, which I would consider much more of a problem than footage that was uniformly sped up, due to any reason. Though re-reading your post, I think my confusion wasn't entirely my fault.

Now that I'm not at work, and in the couple of minutes since I last posted, I found this:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2018/11/08/white-house-shares-doctored-video-support-punishment-journalist-jim-acosta/?utm_term=.7f3b71fb1241

which says that not only was the footage both sped up and slowed down, but also had frames altered. Which, I agree, would certainly count as doctored.

I log onto Herochat to shoot the the shit and learn shit, not to get upset if it turns out I was mistaken or wrong about something. I think we've generally aged out of that type of behavior. But to clarify any confusion, yes, the footage seems doctored to me.
Not an out for you, an out for the White House Admin.

Just quit your job and post here full time. We have at least 11 posters.

So the only way the footage was doctored was that it was sped up?
No, it was sped up and slowed down at strategic points in the video. It wasn't uniformly sped up the way it would have been from a compression error. PJ did exactly what he intended to do.


This was answered for you at least twice.

This is what you said:

Using the sped up footage, PJ made it appear that Acosta struck the intern when you can clearly see otherwise in the live footage. Knowing full well that this was falsified information, the White House Administration used it as their justification.

I was asking for clarification.

Sinister always has prep. He almost never engages without it.

His prep is different from someone like Batman's, or even Doom's. Batman is out fighting crime on a daily basis, so he has protocols. Sinister plots and schemes and THEN engages with resources queued up to gather whatever he was after from the battle.

He made it a first amendment issue when he was caught directly lying about the incident. He didn't have to, but that's what Trump did.

I don’t follow this line of thinking. If Acosta thinks he’s been libeled/slandered, I suppose he can pursue that, but I don’t see how it relates to his First Amendment rights.

Also, how was the video doctored? I have heard that the apparent speeding up of the video was due to compressing the video file and/or transferring it from one format to another, which is something I know zilch about.
He was banned and publicly castigated because Trump didn't like being asked questions about lies he was telling the public on a daily basis. That's literally the job of the White House Press Corps.


Then, as an excuse to ban a member of the press, he lied AGAIN and used doctored video as the evidence to support his ban.

He didn't say "I just hate the guy and want them to send somebody else." He tried to stifle freedom of the press, specifically, under false pretenses. He created this situation, personally. That's why it became a first amendment issue instead of Trump just being a dipshit again.

The video was edited and PJ Watson constructed a narrative around the edited footage. The live footage completely contradicted what he needed for the narrative, so he worked around that by doctoring the video.

Using the sped up footage, PJ made it appear that Acosta struck the intern when you can clearly see otherwise in the live footage. Knowing full well that this was falsified information, the White House Administration used it as their justification.

You really need to reflect on why you can't wrap your head around everyone's very real first amendment problem with doctored footage being used by a President (who has spent years attacking the first amendment, publicly) to attack first amendment rights yet again.

then he added in a a doctored tape and using presidential power to push it. that might be breaking slander laws or fraud. even if he was a normal guy he might get in trouble for that let alone the president

This isn't making much headlines here in Australia but has it been proven 100% that the footage was doctored???

I mean I can't imagine Trump concerned or smart enough to quickly suggest & sanction altering the footage.
More like his spin doctors altered the footage behind his back & then released it with his approval.

Is the intern even pressing charges of assault?

It's ridiculously sad if it's true. It's outright fraudulent & yet that aspect is being completely ignored by both the public & the law.
Yes, it's 100% doctored and was almost definitely done without his guidance by InfoWars. He's doubling down and entrenching himself in the blatant, easily provable lie because his supporters pretend that's 'defending himself' or 'being tough'.

You want to ban somebody and tell their agency to send a different reporter? I can see reasoning for that. Falsifying evidence in front of the entire world and using that as your reasoning is absolutely unacceptable.

He's trying to feel out what the public will allow him to do.

Trump is our employee, full stop. He needs to be visible and accountable. He's specifically taking steps to limit that accountability and he's using doctored evidence to justify it.


He's trying to establish a precedent where removing reporters because they report what he actually says and does in real life is OK. You should be significantly more upset that he's trying to pull this off.

I agree with MTL. I think the likelihood of provable, impeachable offenses exist, but there's nothing substantial enough to justify it.

Impeachment of a populist leader has to be absolutely rock solid.

Remember he's had 11 years to get his shit together by the time RDR comes around, so him being a reliable badass by then makes sense.

Still not that far in the story, but hopefully there's some more red deaths and redemptions.
