Fox News manipulates its own video to spread allegation that Biden looked at his watch during transfer of fallen troops

Quote:
Right-wing media are trying to manufacture a scandal out of President Joe Biden’s visit yesterday to the dignified transfer ceremony at Dover Air Force Base, in which the remains of U.S. troops killed in last week’s terrorist attack in Afghanistan were received home.

And now, Fox News is even manipulating its own news video — playing it back in slow motion — in order to provide corroboration to right-wing complaints that Biden looked at his watch during the ceremony.

Notably, the initial video that circulated online included a clip from Fox News’ live coverage of the transfer ceremony on Sunday, during which co-anchors Mike Emanuel and Jacqui Heinrich, Fox national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin, and news correspondent David Spunt all did not seem to notice anything amiss. But after other right-wing media personalities jumped on this visual, based on a few seconds of Biden’s hand movements during the ceremony, Fox would soon find itself having to catch up.

Within about 15 minutes of the ceremony, Newsmax host Benny Johnson tweeted the clip while alleging that Biden “appears to check his watch.” Johnson’s claim has since spread through a number of other right-wing outlets, including the Boston Herald, The Daily Wire, the U.K.-based Daily Mail, and Fox’s corporate cousin the New York Post. Many of them used a still photo from The Associated Press — one of many from the ceremony — that selected the brief moment when it might have appeared Biden was looking at his wrist.

From there, Fox has covered the story in terms of conservatives denouncing Biden, without putting the network’s own name on whether the story was true. On Monday morning, during a headline update during Fox & Friends, news reader Jillian Mele said, “President Biden being criticized for appearing to check his watch … . The video going viral, and as you can understand, a lot of people have strong opinions on this.”

And as can be seen by comparing the two videos, Fox has now put Biden’s movement in slow motion — at roughly half the speed, in order to double the apparent time of the movements.
In addition to the manipulation, watches are used for a lot more than checking time nowadays, taking medicine when it beeps is one. But yeah I wasn't too concerned about it but evidently now there are gonna be a horde of old folks who will always believe it because they only get their "news" from fox

Right-wing social media personalities had apparently geared up to find any reason whatsoever to criticize Biden over the ceremony. On Saturday night, a number of conservatives circulated a false claim that the remains had arrived at Dover with no administration figures present — even though the remains had not yet arrived. (Nevertheless, the claim was spread in now-deleted tweets by such figures as Fox News host Laura Ingraham and Fox contributor Richard Grenell.)

Video or no video, almost all of the 13 families of the fallen confirmed that Biden was checking his watch multiple times. You may post all you wish about Fox news, but the families were the ones that reported the facts.
