The Left’s Penchant for Selectively Editing Videos.

Citizen media, with the internet and small video cameras, poses a threat to the left’s most sacred institutions. Something that began with James OKeefe bringing down ACORN and Lila Rose knocking on Planned Parenthood’s door has turned into a movement of everyday people questioning their elected officials with flip cams and using technology to change the world. Naturally, the left, coupled with the media, is out to put a stop to this.

As a blogger-videographer-citizen journalist, I have been accused of heavily editing my videos. As if I’m James Cameron and I some how created a C.G.I. version of Phil Hare and MADE him say “I don’t worry about the Constitution.”

They accuse O’Keefe and Rose and many others in this new media movement of the same thing. “Selective Editing” and “Heavy Editing.” are the new buzzwords. The truth is, the left and the MSM are the worst offenders when it comes to intentionally deceptive edits. I should know, they’ve pilfered and deceptively edited MY video.

Just days after CrashTheTeaParty.Org made national news by encouraging people to wear racist garb and attempt to infiltrate Tea Parties, look who shows up at the April 15 2010 St. Louis Tax Day Tea Party Rally. A guy with a Swastika on his shirt. His goal, no doubt, was to slip in be photographed and get out, giving the media a great “Nazi at the Tea Party” narrative.

He didn’t count on myself and other members of the St. Louis Tea Party being ready for him. You’re not gonna come up on our turf and out maneuver us. Myself and other Tea Partiers called him out and eventually ran him off. All on video.

Here’s What happened:

Even though this guy was completely rejected and discredited the “Nazi at the Tea Party” narrative was just too much to resist for Lee Fang and Think Progress. They “selectively edited” my video making it appear that swastika boy was just hanging out the Tea Party spouting his racist crap. Here’s Fang-Think Progress video in question.

Deceptive Editing!! Where’s the outrage lefties? This wasn’t done for time abridgment, it was done to distort the original context of my video. Big difference between what they do and what they’ve cited as “selectively edited.”

Around the same time MSNBC aired a report about people openly-legally carrying fire arms to healthcare reform rallies. In that report they show a 3 second video clip of a man with an AR-15 Rifle over his shoulder, the clip is deceptively edited to conceal the man’s race.

Contessa Brewer goes on to say “Questions whether or not there racial overtones. Here you have a man of color in the Presidency and white people showing up with guns”. Brewer and two others talk for several minutes about racism and “hate groups” trying desperately paint the Tea Party as gun toting racists. All the while omitting the fact that the man in the video with the AR-15 was African American.

Even though the guy holding the gun didn’t fit MSNBC’s narrative, that shot of the big scary assault rifle was just too good to resist. So they cropped it to conceal his race and ran with it. The truth be damned.

More recently the leftist bullshit factory known as Media Matters attacked John Stossel, claiming that Stossel’s recent report on the Pigford black farmer discrimination suit failed to recognize that actual discrimination took place.

The Pigford case went from a legitimate discrimination claim by legitimate farmers to a free for all for everyone who has ever owned a potted plant. The lawyers have broadened the standards for participation from actual farmers to people who “attempted to farm.” This of course is leading to massive fraud costing the government billions.

In the above linked attack article by Media Matters said this of Stossel’s report:

But just like the last time he did a segment on Pigford, Stossel refused to acknowledge that discrimination had occurred” and “Stossel’s refusal to acknowledge the discrimination against the black farmers makes him even more dishonest.

However, Stossel’s report clearly highlights the case of one actual victim, Jimmy Dismuke. Here’s the video:

Yet Media Matters runs this selectively edited clip of Stossel’s report as if it’s some sort of proof.

More selective editing and lies. Where’s the righteous indignation Libs?

Finally, a new editing strategy has emerged on the left. I’m calling this “violent editing.” In this new tactic the exposed leftist will simply attack the citizen journalist and destroy the camera, violently editing out his own crime.

I have discovered this new tactic first hand in my encounter with controversial UMSL Professor Don Giljum. Giljum made news recently when video leaked from his labor studies class that exposed his radical curriculum. Ironically, Giljum complained to me that those videos were taken out of context and heavily edited. That was just before he did a little editing of his own by breaking my camera. Luckily I caught the aftermath with my back up cam:

Four rock solid examples of the left practicing the very deceptive editing tactics they accuse myself and others of doing – and those are just the ones I can think of right now. It’s clear that the Soros funded left, Media Matters, Think Progress, and MSNBC have zero regard for truth and have the market cornered on lies and “selective editing.”

UMSL Lecturer Don Giljum Assaults Citizen Journalist. Police Confiscate Video.

Earlier this week I went to University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) to try and get the Chancellor to comment on the controversial videos that had come from Professor Judy Ancel and Don Giljum’s Labor Studies class. I visited Wood’s Hall and spoke to several high-ranking University officials on camera. Never once was I told I was trespassing, or that I could not film.
Because of that positive experience at Wood’s Hall, I felt comfortable returning to UMSL on Saturday, April 30th, in an attempt to interview Don Giljum, arriving at UMSL at approximately 2:15 pm. The class was scheduled to take a break at 2:30. I found Giljum’s classroom, waited outside quietly and not approaching the door so as not to disrupt the class. I had waited several minutes when Giljum (I recognized him from the videos) and another man exited the classroom, walking by me as they proceeded down a hall. I stayed put as I realized Giljum would have to return to his classroom at some point.

Giljum and the other man parted ways and he started to head back to his classroom.

I asked, ”Are You Don Giljum?” as he approached. ”Yes,” he responded, coming towards me. A press pass hanging around my neck was clearly visible. He walked up to me and stood in front of my camera with his back to the classroom door. I asked “When was the last time you committed industrial sabotage, or threatened the use of industrial sabotage to gain leverage in a Union negotiation?” “Never, said Giljum, “that was all taken out of context.”

He asked me my name and I told him. He then asked me who I was with. I told him SharpElbows.Net. “Are you the one who did the internet hatchet job on me?” he asked. “I didn’t see any hatchet job, just your words on video” I said. That’s when Giljum appeared to lose it!

He grabbed my camera, breaking it off from the mono-pod upon which it was mounted. The mono-pod fell to the ground behind me and the camera slammed to the floor, tumbling under a desk on the side of the hall. He then tried to punch me. Luckily, I was able to quickly mostly slip Giljum’s punch, stepping back away from him. Once I felt I was at a safe distance, I pulled my back-up video camera out of my pocket and was able to capture a small piece of video.

After he was back in his classroom, I retrieved my camera from under the desk and attempted to view the video to no avail. The camera was rolling when he grabbed at it, so the video file was damaged and not viewable on the camera. I assumed I would have to wait until I got home to try and retrieve it with my computer.

At this point several people left the classroom. I called information on my cell phone to try to get the number for Campus Police. I wasn’t seriously hurt, so I didn’t want to bother with 911 call. While I was on the phone the campus police arrived. Someone had apparently gone and got them. I immediately told the officers that Giljum had assaulted me, damaged my property and I wanted him arrested.

One officer went into the classroom to talk to Giljum and others. I waited outside with another officer. When the 1st officer emerged with Giljum he looked at me and said “You’re getting the same charges.” I said “What do you mean?”

That’s when they placed me under arrest. I asked several times what I was being charged with, receiving no answer. They hand-cuffed my hands behind me. They were tight and I asked the policeman to loosen them; he declined. They then led both Giljum and me down the stairs, his hands cuffed in front of him, for some reason, while mine remained hand-cuffed uncomfortable behind me.

When we reached the street, the first cop told me I was trespassing and needed permission to come on campus and film. I told him that was never mentioned to me during my visit to Wood’s Hall earlier this week. I had roamed the hall freely with my video camera and no one objected at all at that time.

I was transported to the UMSL Police Station where I was “booked” for Trespassing, my fingerprints were taken, as was a mug-shot.

At that point the Sergeant came in to review the situation. I showed him the damage to my camera and told him what had happened. He asked to see the video and I explained the file was damaged and I couldn’t display it to him on the camera. He then said that they were confiscating it because it was evidence of property damage (the camera itself) and also keeping the SD video card because the video was evidence of both my trespassing and Giljum’s assault. I protested but he refused to return it. I then asked if I could simply plug it into my lap top to copy the files. My lap top was on the table in front of me along with all of my other possessions. He refused.

Eventually, I was released but was given no paperwork: no citation for tresspassing; no note, or piece of paper with a court date; no receipt for my confiscated video camera and digital media card – nothing.

They say the camera is locked in evidence, along with my video, until at least Monday.
