Default Fox affiliate fires employee for doctoring video of Trump Oval Office address

Quote:
Fox affiliate Q13 in Seattle fired a staffer who the station says doctored a video of President Trump delivering an address from the Oval Office on Tuesday night.

The video shown on the station's newscast made it appear as if Trump was sticking his tongue out while delivering a speech on the government shutdown. The video was also manipulated to make the president's skin and hair appear more orange.

“This does not meet our editorial standards and we regret if it is seen as portraying the president in a negative light,” said Q13 news director Erica Hill in an emailed statement to the Seattle Times on Thursday morning.

Later Thursday, Hill released another statement announcing the termination of the employee responsible.




Quote:
“We’ve completed our investigation into this incident and determined that the actions were the result of an individual editor whose employment has been terminated," she said.

I don't see how that's funny at all..It was as unprofessional as possible...

The issue I see is that there's no oversight...You would think all video would be screened before going onscreen with it...

nowhere near as bad a foxnews reporter (not an affiliate) saying he was embedded with hussein, when all the time he was in his hotel room. turned in a made up story. then whoops! turns out the tour saadam was taking reporters on was canceled. lol but yeah way funnier.

Prolly some lib employee who watches The View religiously.

Good thing is they have standards. I've seen MSNBC and CNN do far worse and not only do nothing, but actually support 'em.

standards? where's the firing of foxnews corporate reporter for above infraction? That was a lot more serious than calling Trump an accurate adjective that happens to be a curse word.

Just curious. If someone had taken a video of Obama, and doctored it to make his skin darker, and gave him big lips, would you have found it as funny?

Two step in 5....4....3....

When I read the title of the thread--"Fox affiliate fires employee for doctoring video of Trump Oval Office address"--I truly thought that the employee of the station had doctored the thread in order to make President Trump appear better.

And, even while believing that, I thought that the appropriate punishment would be his termination.

I still believe that.
