concensus via post-production

Senator Clinton was booed when she walked on stage last October at a rock concert in Madison Square Garden to benefit 9/11 victims. It was shown live by VH1 but, as ABC's John Stossel illustrated in a July 20/20 special on media distortions, when the Viacom-owned cable channel replayed it sound technicians replaced the booing with cheering and applause. And that version is the permanent record VH1 put onto its DVD of the event.

RealVideo of both versions:

Scene missing! A video that used to be embedded in this post has disappeared. If you know of a copy of this video that is still accessible, please mail me so that I can update the link.

    Not only is this old news, it's also a pretty standard practice. When I worked for CBS, such things happened on a weekly basis.

    Consensus, dear boy, not -census.

    Otherwise top hole!
