This article seems to suggest some "Hollywooding" in a recent report from CNN.

The video report shows a dramatic rescue in progress and a "just in time" result.

CNN's been airing this relentlessly on the air.

Does anybody think this was somehow "pre-planned" ?

Like scripted and perfectly acted out by actors?

Or was this real and genuine ?

I don't know.

Follow the video and then look at some shots in the article.

Something Very Odd In That “CNN Crew Rescuing Man in Truck” Video…

Perhaps you might have seen the story of Drew Griffin from CNN and a spontaneous, and serendipitous, CNN crew’s rescue of a Texas man who drove his truck into a canal.

Kudos for CNN being in the right place at the right time and doing the right thing etc. CNN has been playing up the video all day as an act of spontaneous CNN bravery in a moment of emergency and crisis. High-fives and back-pats all around.

Here’s the video: follow the bouncing ball.......



Except someone noticed something weird about it.

Either there’s another guy in the video and the footage makes it seem weird and conflated, or Drew Griffin had time to change clothes between the moment the man drove into the canal and the moment Griffin “rescued” him.

Yeah sure seems strange.
With all the kicks to the nutsack they have taken over the last 8-9 months, they needed something to make themselves look good.
Not sure an obviously staged rescue is gonna make it better though.

The Cat GIF in the article pretty much sums up how I feel about it.

This comment was good too.

"Brian Williams approves this rescue"

Trust nothing on TV.

What is the problem? Reporter red jacket, crew guy black jacket, rescued guy blue shirt. The entire time. What's weird?

How can you even think about questioning the integrity of one of the world's most credible news organizations? CNN's reporting is above reproach.

CNN wouldn't fake something like this, for what Ratings?????

They just report the news, not make it.

Could be dodgy, or it could be that he was halfway prepared for a day in a flood zone, and had some waterproof pants on hand, in case of emergency. Those things take seconds to put on, but are a total must in a flood zone.

Why..... CNN never ever faked anything before.... Right?



Gulf War.... we're in a war zone!



Freaking untrustworthy liars!

At 00:50 Drew Griffin (?) running toward man in truck. Note clothing.




Nine seconds later, Griffin arrives to drag man from vehicle. Only, now he’s switched from shorts and sandals into black pants and boots. Huh?




It wasn’t much of a desperate emergency if CNN’s Drew Griffin had time to change from a pair of shorts and sandals into a pair of long pants and boots?

HAHA! Are you saying they were "Beamed Down"?

I think this actually was coincidence. The only part that struck me weird is the cameraman keeps filming, but when they actually get "Jerry" out it is conveniently blocked by the sign!

Odd, but it really does look like an older fellow driving into a ravine with no way of knowing as from the video it was even difficult to see how deep that was until his truck floated away.

Oh but then the pants and shorts conspiracy...oh that...

CNN IS FAKE NEWS

infowars.com

Alex Jones owes me a t-shirt for this now.

Could be set up but my guess is that if you spend enough time around that area you're bound to see something like this happen.

I dunno.

This was staged for ratings. They did something similar this past Saturday. At its core, CNN is Anti-America/American.

That guy with shorts wasn't even him. The reporter was still running, unless he teleported there.

Op doesn't make sense.

Watch the video - it's pretty obvious that the guy walking with the shorts is *not* Drew Griffin - he just happens to have the same colored jacket. Drew Griffin is seen running cross camera, 2 seconds pass, the camera pans and shows *another* guy slowly walking. Not the same guy.

CNN is now drooling over the prospect that IRMA will strengthen into a Hurricane and cause more death and destruction in the U.S. late next week.

It's funny (ie sad) that people watch these raw footages of events and overanalyze the hell out them to the point where they're drawing wilda$$ conclusions that are totally illogical. This is a benign case, but is similar to the whole crisis actor crap from sandy hook, boston, etc, etc. Borders on delusional.

Then where is the slow walking red coat when they are actually at the edge pulling the guy out? Why wouldn't he be helping as well? Odd don't think?
