Earlier today White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted out a doctored video to support the decision to pull Jim Acosta's press credentials. Here is the tweet:

Sarah Sanders Twitter

The video is doctored to make his actions appear more violent by speeding up the rate of his movements. The doctored video supposedly originates from Alex Jone's Infowars site.


Looking back at the video, it does not in fact show Acosta “placing his hands” on the woman. But about 90 minutes after she posted her string of tweets, Infowars editor Paul Joseph Watson tweeted out a video of the incident that was doctored to make it look like Acosta chopped the woman’s arm with his hand.

Less than an hour later, Sanders tweeted out the doctored video, writing, “We will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior clearly documented in this video.”


Here is some analysis proving the illegitimacy of the video in question and a side by side comparison.

It is absolutely insane that the White House Press Secretary is tweeting out fake news. But let me guess, all the Trumpets are ok with it, right?

I do not think any one is ok with a man putting hands on a woman, are you?

I am sorry, I just don't condone a man putting his hands on a lady.
To me party doesn't matter in that situation.

I damn sure wouldn't call what soy boy Acosta did as assault, but hey, it wasn't my ilk who made every little damn interaction in society a criminal offense......

The reporter is a jerk, why do they need to use a video to oust the guy from ever coming back in? There are good reporters that can replace this guy.

Man Acosta is a woman beater. I bet he hates all women. And black people, and Muslims, and gays,

I'm thinking that was directed at the OP, you know, the guy that sits here all day and authors thread after thread about anti-trump DNC propaganda points.

It was zoomed in. Of course it was doctored.

But the idea it was sped up is unfounded. Your "analysis" is a tweet.

You're dealing in conspiracy theory and spreading fake news.

It doesn't matter which one you watch he applies and increases force. It's disgusting. It's also disgusting to try and excuse it.

Slo-mo is a legitimate form of checking action. Ever watch football? Ever seen a call made on replay? He uses his strength and moves her off balance.

Can we just all agree this whole thing is stupid? I'm sorry, but I thought Republicans were better than this. I hate Acosta and CNN, but this is not an assault. This is a simple reflex reaction by someone honed into his job. Trump was right about him being a rude terrible person. But c'mon people, assault? Just drop it.

Ultimate deflection by the deranged Leftists to condone asshole Acosta’s asshole behavior.
You don’t need a doctored video to see he is an asshole.
It’s plain as day.

He should have been banned from the day Trump took office. They should get rid of these pressers all together. Nothing ever comes out of them of any value. What did we learn from this exchange? Trump said it is an invasion. Jim said it is not. That's not even a question just a difference of opinion. He is giving an opinion, his own so it's not a real question.

Here are the side-by-side videos:


The interesting thing to me is that the "original" C-Span video has fewer frames than the one supposedly altered... How does that happen?

It seems more likely to me that the "original" was the one altered with a few of the most incriminating shots removed.

But I'm happy to be skooled...

Really? I'm sure the woman will survive the vicious attack. Don't clutch your pearls too tightly.

I am sorry but the way CNN reporter was behaving was completely unprofessional. Fact that other reporters also in the room laughed at him just further shows he was unprofessional.
