Some posts claiming Clinton team has manipulated a picture to show higher crowd numbers at a recent Ohio rally. I'd suggest a predictable ruse by trump chaps to under mine clinton credibility.

Yet here is the original picture and so more than a heads been worked in, a full crowd as well

which itself has already been edited to claim - show low rally turn out

CLINTON-OHIO-RALLY-01-800x416.jpg

There is no real surprise about all this, i suggest both sides are guilty of willful or mistaken use of pictures to show a better face but what i like to be able to find or show is

1. the original pictures date and time stamp
2. the primary source of the manipulated picture who 1st posted it
When i right click picture inspect it give lots of information and data but im unclear how to best interpret or search though this

Here's a thumbnail of a video stream from the same event (can't find the actual video). It's from the UK Sky news, so would be in BST on that day. Looks like 16:05 BST, which would be 11:05 AM in Ohio.


Clearly in neither photos is Clinton actually there. However the crowd in this photo looks more like the actual one while he is speaking

Edit: Here's the video on Facebook, it's about 50 min before Bill shows up.

This was an early voter rally at Cleveland State University, Oct. 29, Bill Clinton was speaking. Bill's not behind the podium, so I'm not sure how large the crowd actually got. I haven't seen either official camp trying to use the photo and as far as I can find the rally only got a little local coverage.

There is a video that centers on Bill in that link, doesn't show much of the crowd.

Fb isnt the orignal. found a site where first comment was 6:44 am Oct 30th.

But since even his own readers are asking him for a MSM link -with no response from uploader- i dont really see the point in advertising his site. It is so badly done, it's gotta be a joke.

thanks all the source & timeline has been found, those meddling kids at 4chan strike again. can i ask did anyone work out how to interrogate a pictures element or properties? i read tho here but yet to discover how to find a pictures origin- date.. its probably within but a bit confronting for my less than boffin computer code skills..

http://www.photometadata.org/meta-resources-field-guide-to-metadata

i looked but could not find EXIF file or thread

i dont see a definite source. the source i found which was uploaded
i realized from "view source" has a twitter link address
ff.JPG

so i went to his twitter feed and see he retweeted this dated Oct. 29th 9:36 Pacific time, which would be October 30th 12:36 am, yes?
so unless i'm mistaken that is earlier by quite a bit than that channel 4 link. (although timestamps confuse me so i could be missing something...check my math)

As far as EXIF data, there are extensions or website you can use but not every pic comes with EXIF data attached.

But it reminds me of a real one.

The "Dubya" campaign got caught doing exactly this in their
"Whatever It Takes" commercial in'04.

When caught, the Bush people just called it an innocent mistake, and the media let it go...

Not really comparable. Yes, it was a faked image, but it wasn't done to exaggerate the size of the crowd. As the article @NoParty linked to said, it was done to remove Bush and his lectern from the scene.

Snopes had a look at this one recently

http://www.snopes.com/manipulated-photograph-of-bill-clinton-crowd/

They conclude that 4chan was the origin for the image.
I don't think they are correct. The image was uploaded to 4Chan at 20:25 (GMT) on October 30.

The time on this tweet, found by @deirdre, is 04:36 on Oct 30 (GMT), which is almost 16 hours earlier than the 4chan post.

It's also noticeable how just about all the replies to that tweet are missing the point, and still assuming the doctored image was actually posted "officially".

The first comment on the blog site deirdre found is dated at 06:44 on Oct 30. I don't know what time zone that is, but it would have to be GMT -14 in order to be later than the 4chan post. The latest timezone in the word is GMT -12, so no dice.

Broken link so as not to boost the site's ranking: www. theburningplatform. com/2016/10/30/msm-faking-hillary-rally-size-i-guess-size-does-matter/

Hmm. It's certainly minor, but my point was that I see the humor of a (false) charge of digitally
editing an image against one [D] team, when the other team [R] has actually admitted doing it.

Intent is a separate issue. Maybe I'm a bit jaded
--from overexposure to the polarization of American politics--
but if the Obama administration had been caught manipulating images for a campaign commercial,
I don't envision his political enemies giving two damns about "intent." Just my 2 cents.

i'd be surpised if Republicans went out of their way to highlight that Obama REMOVED himself from a photo in order to highlight the military members. And at least "W" didn't try to pass himself off as a black man like Jeb did.
And he didnt forget to whiten his teeth like McCain did
