2-minute video: FOX edits, fakes applause for John Bolton pro-war statement

The 2-minute video is a public meeting of former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton responding to a US war veteran’s question. The video shows that FOX then edits-out the audience response to replace it with applause from a different person’s question. The proof is that the applause-segment shows a different person walking away from the microphone than the person who asked the question. The veteran testified that the audience booed Mr. Bolton’s answer.

This is not just FOX, but all of the six mega-media US corporations who lie by commission and omission as war propagandists.

I previously documented FOX “reporting”, CBS, ABC, and CNN war propaganda by picking a day to look at their “news” and simply showing what they say. Importantly, one could do this every single day with similar examples of what I wrote on CNN’s published work of “credible” journalism:

When we now know that all claims for war with Iraq were known lies as they were told (and verbally explained here), and CNN provides similar innuendo for war by an unsourced alleged report with concerns of what might occur in the future allegedly stated by an unnamed US source reporting on an unnamed foreign source, this is propaganda and not news.

You might need to read the above twice to feel the impact of this choice of communication from CNN, then verify the source to see this is exactly what they reported.

    It was even reported in the NY Times, at the time, that the CIA had operatives at CNN during the last Iraq war. It was out there and known then. They may still be at CNN. The truth is dangerous to the ambitions of the state. While what is happening in Syria is clearly deplorable, does anyone think there would be less violence in the USA if a significant group of people rebelled?

    This is the puke who is dissing a vet :
    “Bolton supported the Vietnam War and enlisted in the Maryland Army National Guard, but did not serve in Vietnam. He wrote in his Yale 25th reunion book “I confess I had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy. I considered the war in Vietnam already lost.”[15] In an interview, Bolton discussed his comment in the reunion book, explaining that he decided to avoid service in Vietnam because “by the time I was about to graduate in 1970, it was clear to me that opponents of the Vietnam War had made it certain we could not prevail, and that I had no great interest in going there to have Teddy Kennedy give it back to the people I might die to take it away from.”[16][17]”

    What is really disgusting is Chickenhawk Bolton’s implication that this young man did not serve honorably.

      I’m surprised the audience didn’t beat Bolton down. The government, Generals and military Commander are using our military for their personal agenda’s.

    It’s obvious CNN is trying to manipulate viewers regarding Syria, it’s like a 24-hour save the children infomercial. One reporter actually asked, “how would you feel if this was your home or your family?” in an obvious attempt to garner public sentiment. Funny how they absolutely never ask this type of question when the US is the aggressor.

    I watched this on tv and have it recorded on my DVR, I’ll have to look back at it and see if it shows the edited version or the uncut. Bolton got booed ALOT during his interview.
