But it’s not simply these these two networks. Last yr ABC News had been caught staging a fake “crime scene” for reporter Linsey Davis to report from in a section broadcast on Good Morning America.
Viewers had been introduced with the sight of Davis standing in entrance of yellow police tape with the phrases “SHERIFF’S LINE DO NOT CROSS” and ABC News, reporting from the positioning for hours, claimed Davis was in the course of an lively crime scene.
But she wasn’t. The ABC News report had extra in frequent with a Hollywood manufacturing than a breaking information report.
Linsey Davis was truly standing in a area in Woodruffe, South Carolina – not on the crime scene she was claiming to be reporting from.

Then issues get actually weird. Watch the vehicles transferring within the background of each photographs:
While this parking zone fiasco is perhaps labeled as a small lie, it demonstrates that deceit and manipulation are elementary to mainstream media operations nowadays. You know you’re coping with compulsive liars after they lie even when there’s nothing to be gained by it.
