This YT will completely convince you that there are some very bad people in high places in the US government and their causes are being supported by Fox fakery. There are so many veterans of the US wars today whose consciences will not allow them to be quiet. My heart goes out to all those suffering from war. Sorry if I got the link wrongly placed. Please discuss. www.youtube.com...

They have been caught lying and faking the news so much I don't know how they are even considered a news program. I unplugged from TV and faux news over a year ago. This reminds me of why.

The charge that is made against Fox is that they stripped out the booing and inserted mild applause. Commenters noted that you can't strip out booing when some one is talking, it takes the words out too. other commenters noted that it looked liked normal editing of the sort that occurs when you try to get twoo hours of film into forty minutes of television. No one is even hinting that words were deleted, inserted, or altered.

Insulting a war veteran? No, not that I heard. The questioner accused his fellow soldiers of being jack-booted thugs, doing all sorts of terrible things. Bolton only defended American soldiers, he didn't insult this one.

Dodges question? Maybe. Bolton seemed to get so caught up in the vet's accusations that he didn't get to the question. The vet didn't re-ask or comment on Bolton's lack of direct answer, so I think the dodge was unintentional. Sort of like saying "You're mother's a whore and what do you pay for milk?" Then wondering why the guy you asked never tells you what he pays for milk.

It was a definite quick-cut insertion and the intent was to restore respect to Bolton in the minds of the viewers. It is an attempt at mind control. Bolton replies: "I'm sorry you feel that way" and by saying that he dodged the vet's eyewitness experiences, diverting the conversation to assessment of the vet's feelings. Bolton did insult the vet by saying that "To the hundreds of thousands of Americans who served with honor..." (and he emphasized the word honor) Thus speaking, he implied the vet's dishonor.

Quite possibly the best smack down I have ever seen in my life, I almost cried.

Dear Another Vodka,

I guess I just saw it differently. But this is one I wouldn't recommend anyone be too sure about.

the intent was to restore respect to Bolton in the minds of the viewers.
It's hard for me to judge intent. There are other possible explanations.

"To the hundreds of thousands of Americans who served with honor..." (and he emphasized the word honor) Thus speaking, he implied the vet's dishonor.
Remember that the vet had just talked about soldiers who were jack-booted thugs? Isn't it possible that Bolton was saying "To the hundreds of thousands of Americans who served without being jack-booted thugs?"

This seems to be one of those situations where people can read into it different things. It's a maybe, maybe not. As I said, nothing I'd be too sure about.

With respect,
Charles1952

Notice how foxnews added the applause to the end of the video that didn't originally exist:
