White House Spox on Allegations of Doctored Acosta Video: Speed of Video 'Doesn't Matter'

Source: Mediate

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley dismissed allegations his colleague Sarah Huckabee Sanders posted a doctored video of CNN reporter Jim Acosta in order to justify the indefinite suspension of his press credentials.

Eric Bolling interviewed Gidley on the White House lawn for his CRTV show America, and asked him about allegations that the video — which shows the confrontation between Acosta and a White House intern — was a doctored one taken from an editor for conspiracy website Infowars.

“I can’t speak to the origin of the video except to say, I know where it started — it started right in that room over there where everyone saw it,” Gidley said. “It doesn’t matter who puts it up, who posts it, it doesn’t matter the speed at which the video is seen, it doesn’t matter the angle.”

“The question is, at the core of this, and this is why Jim Acosta lost his credential, did he touch her or not?” Gidley asked. “The video is clear, he did.”

1. The speed mattered enough for them to change it.

5. During the trial of the four officers accused of beating Rodney King the defense showed

the video frame-by-frame to prove that King wasn't beaten as badly by the officers as everyone said he was. Take a look at the original video and make your own decision:



Despite the video evidence the four officers were acquitted, triggering riots in which more than 50 people were killed, 2,000 injured and hundreds of buildings burned to the ground.

That the WH would use doctored evidence to justify pulling Costa's credentials isn't surprising. These are the same people who omit or modify Trump's words in the official speeches published on the WH website.

6. If "it doesn't matter the speed at which the video is seen..."

then why post an altered video?

9. OK, well if it doesn't matter, then let's use the undoctored version

Because like you say, the speed doesn't matter.

And *NO* he didn't touch her. She may have touched him when she tried to grab the microphone.
Is the intern losing her credentials over this? Asking for a friend.

10. The White House is actively

seeking someone to do harm to Jim Acosta.
