[ADMIN: The actual debunking is in post #2, directly below this post. This is the original question that led to the debunk] I have to say that I’m surprised that there’s nothing on MBO (metaBunk.Org) about this already. Here goes (let’s see this one debunked): CONSPRIACY THEORY CLAIM: CNN ( and mainstream News Media in general) puts out Fake News Broadcasts WHY: To condition the public to accept propaganda in place of genuine reporting/news EXAMPLE: CNN’s Gulf War Coverage with Charles Jaco SOURCE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTWY14eyMFg Where the CCN Gulf War Broadcasts with Charles Jaco real meaning was he and the rest of the film crew actually in the Gulf at the time or where they using a fake back drop to report from regardless of whether what they reported was true in part or whole? One of the better arguments I’ve seen for this being fake is that there was not a sufficient time delay between Charles Jaco and the CNN Newsroom anchor he was speaking to. There was a pause however its hard to tell if its because of an actual delay or if it’s the loud siren making it difficult to hear the other person. I believe this was a fake broadcast, something done from some place other than the GULF because of the relaxed and joking nature amongst everyone there at times when they were not live. Back in those days when satellites were not as prevalent amongst user as they eventually became major networks broadcast their feeds openly and so if you had a dish you could capture raw/unedited video footage and that’s apparently where this came from. I doubt anyone will argue that this footage includes unedited feeds, the times when those involved are not live on the air but are still sending a video feed to the source; to CNN. That said the nature of Charles and others there are too relaxing to believe they were anywhere near a real battlefield in the Gulf. Tats not to say they were atop of the CNN new building as some have said but only that they weren’t where the claimed to be. SUMMARY: “So what”. If it turns out that this was a fake set done as a way to provide coverage without actually sending reporters into harm’s way then so what? What harm is there in that? The problem is that this sets a precedence that it’s OK for the media to lie. There’s also no logical reason for CNN faking their news reporter being on site in the Gulf. The only logical reason for why CNN would do this is because they in general do not report the news as it occurs but instead produce infotainment as an alternative for the masses in the US. Why? So as to condition the public to accept alternatives to the truth. I look forward to hearing replies from debunkers on how this was not fake and or the excuses for hwy it was OK for CNN to fake this.
