OH MY! FACT CHECK HAS POSTED A DOCTORED VIDEO OF CLINTON'S "TRUE" AD

And they are Defending the Clinton Campaign with it.

See this discussion here:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Original Fact Check article here: http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/did_clinton_dar...

Fact Check has taken the stance that the Clinton Ad was not manipulated by Clinton's campaign to exaggerate Obama's racial characteristics.

So, I downloaded the WMV video from their site (file here: http://www.factcheck.org/video/clintontruecmagcodeddown... )

Then I downloaded the video (a Quick Time file) directly from Clinton's website. Both the time-stamp on the file and embedded in the Quick Time file are accurate to when the commercial was released. You can download the Quick Time file here (it's in a ZIP file):
http://static.hillaryclinton.com/i/video/vids/ad_200803...


I then loaded them into Quick Time (v 7.4.1.14) WMV file loaded with Flip4Mac 2.1.3.10 plugin and played to same frame at 13 seconds.

The left is Fact Check's High Quality Video. The Right is the video from Clinton's own website. The difference is clear in the screen shot below:



On edit: Both videos are 640x480, Quick Time was sized to the movie size. These videos were side-by-side on same monitor and the screen capture was done so that both were captured in one screen shot.

Note: the left movie looks like it was scaled as there is a dark band along the left side of the video in most of the frames.

It is clear that Fact Check is COMPLETELY WRONG on this issue and they have either BEEN DUPED or are DIRECTLY FALSIFYING the "facts".


Second Edit:
Adding left and right screen shots on top of each other so people do not have to scroll left/right to see full effect. Fact Check video is on Top below. Clinton Website Video on Bottom.
