NBC Calls Out Pelosi's False 'Doctored Video' Claim

Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

NBC News demolished Speaker Nancy Pelosi's claim that President Trump shared a doctored video of her online last night, noting that it seems to be a montage of Pelosi's gaffes.

The Daily Wire's James Barrett has more:
 

Amid Pelosi's accusations that Trump threw a "temper tantrum" in a closed-door meeting with Democrats and is engaged in a "cover-up," Trump tweeted a video aired on Fox Business' "Lou Dobbs Tonight" that is a 30-second montage of Pelosi stammering repeatedly over the course of a 20-minute news conference Thursday.

...

 

In response, Pelosi's Chief of Staff Drew Hammill accused the president of posting a "doctored video." "Hours before the posting of this doctored video, @washingtonpost reports that doctored Pelosi videos are multiplying across social media," he wrote, referencing a Post report on a different video circulating on social media.

But as NBC explains, Team Pelosi's "doctored" and "fake" descriptions appear to be wrong. While a digitial forensics expert did determine that a different video starring Pelosi was altered to make it appear that she was slurring her words, the video posted by Trump does not appear to have been "altered for speed," as the speaker's daughter alleged.

"Hany Farid, a computer-science professor and digital-forensics expert at University of California, Berkeley, told The Post that there was no doubt that video had been altered," NBC News reports. "But he said he believed the video Trump tweeted Thursday had not been slowed down." [emphasis added]


The conflict between Pelosi and Trump has grown increasingly toxic over the past week with escalating personal attacks. 

Meanwhile, the speaker desperately tries behind closed doors to dissuade her colleagues from recklessly pursuing impeachment.
