Press invents bizarre conspiracy theory to distract from Acosta’s behavior

The mainstream media is attempting to distract from CNN’s Jim Acosta placing his hands on a woman during yesterday’s White House press conference by claiming a video of the incident tweeted by Sarah Sanders is “doctored”.
Acosta’s press access was revoked yesterday after he became embroiled in a verbal spat with President Trump and then appeared to overpower a White House staffer who tried to retrieve the microphone from him.
In an obvious effort to distract from Acosta’s behavior towards the woman (which some claim represents minor assault or battery), CNN and the rest of the mainstream media crafted a conspiracy theory that the video clip later tweeted by Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was “doctored,” sped up or “manipulated”.

The clip is not “doctored” or “sped up”. As you can see from the original editing track in Sony Vegas Pro, none of the individual tracks are “sped up”. A track that is sped up would show wavy lines in the original track field, which it doesn’t.
