Everyone is making it sound like they have a DSLR camera up there looking down on Dallas. At best they have a color CCTV or WebCam up there and with the focus pulled all the way back like it is most everything will be in good focus unless it practically lands on the lens of the camera, right? And even then you would still be able to see it because it would be blocking the view... I mean with the focus pulled all the way in, there is no DOF issues right? Splain it to me if I'm wrong here....Blaine, Blaine?

Depth of field would be all the way out here, so as to focus on the roads, traffic, etc.
So, basically, everything within the thirty closest feet to the camera would be blurry as Hades.
Not a problem for a roof mounted camera, and certainly the news channel would make sure that there was as few obstructions as possible, so that they get their money's worth from mounting the camera there.
Also, what would illuminate the supposed 'bug'?
The cameraman would make absolutely certain there was no lights close to the lens, because that would destroy and degrade the night time image they are trying to get.

Because the sheer stupidity of anyone lending credence to this hokum is infuriating to say the least. I don't have the self control and patience to actually go through and teach you to count to 10. Not even accounting for the fact that if I taught you to count to ten, you would argue that it's "one, two, three, potato, zulu, foxtrot, 10010100101001010." You're fixating on me. You NEED me to prove this to you when I've repeatedly said others have already done so. Go back through the pages. Video upon video showing the exact same thing.
Now look at the posts from Blaine91555. Perfect. He's teaching you to count so you better grab a pencil
