All of the news outlets, MSN, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, and FOX, all of them have at one point has gotten something wrong and been called on it.
If you're stating that this was intentionally done, and that they should be called-out, then I agree with you. If you're stating that this was a
mistake, then you couldn't be more wrong.
In order for this to happen, a script had to be written by the producer. The producer had to present the script and treatment to Sean for his
approval, or at the very least - so he'd know what he was going to be seeing in the video. Then the producer gave the approved-script to the editor
and the PA along with the source-footage.
Someone along that chain made the decision to get crowd-footage from another, unrelated reel and edit
it into the segment. This tape/disc was clearly labeled as to what it was, (yes, I know this as "fact" due to my time working at a news outlet...)
so to say that the editor or producer didn't know what they did is not plausible.
