Doublespeak is language that deliberately disguises, distorts, or reverses the meaning of words. Doublespeak may take the form of euphemisms (e.g., "downsizing" for layoffs, "servicing the target" for bombing ), making the truth less unpleasant, without denying its nature. It may also be deployed as intentional ambiguity, or reversal of meaning (for example, naming a state of war "peace"). In such cases, doublespeak disguises the nature of the truth, producing a communication bypass.
 However, euphemism is not the same as doublespeak. It will not be considered as doublespeak if it is used appropriately and without the intention to deceive. For example, using "passed away" to suggest somebody is dead is an appropriate use of euphemism.

I agree that is a very suspect video. Also, it appeared that he had to be prompted to go out on the stage once he realized the gravity of the role he was playing. A well written speech as well. This combined with the fake "phelps family"/ Greenberg Sexton video makes me think this is a scam. I hope an ats person skilled in the area can see if Robbie Anderson is a real individual. If so, do they just promise these actors big money to stay quiet?
