Or he wanted specific answers about how protected the Special Counsel would be in the future - on the same day the President took over the Special Counsel. Which is the polar opposite of the meaning of trolling.

Remember, when Acosta was asking the question, Trump had already fired Sessions and taken control of the investigation set up to investigate himself and his campaign. Trump's reaction to necessary questions was the real disgrace.

He was granted one question, with a follow on. He chose to make that question about the immigrant caravan (though the way he phrased the "question" was inherently critical of President Trump's stance). 

He then tried to ask a second question, but Trump cut him out (without knowing what the question was) in order to give ANOTHER journalist a chance to ask a question. At that point, Acosta butted in and spoke over the President: an act of incredible disrespect. He did this THREE times, despite being asked repeatedly to surrender the microphone. (but he was NOT asking about the Russia investigation during these subsequent interruptions). 

I'm kinda surprised that the President didn't set the Secret Service on him.

It wasn’t edited at all. They just zoomed in on the assault. It wasn’t sped up or slowed down or edited in anyway but the zoom function. 

Looking at the reported tech analysis (source: Wall Street Journal) — the video was clearly edited to repeat frames — and in such a way as to make the arm sweep appear more violent.

The fact that the guy spoke over the president, repeatedly, and then pushed the Intern's hand away when she attempted -a third time - to take the mic... that's okay with you, Tiggs?

I thought I’d been pretty clear that I don’t care about the incident itself.

The White House propagating tampered video evidence? That I do care about.

It wasn't tampered with it was zoomed in on.

That website freezes my browser.  can you paste the relevant parts of the analysis please?  

They were showing the actual video on the local news this morning and the contact itself is not violent and when Acosta's hand hits her arm it looks unintentional to me now, but he did step way over the acceptable line of behavior.  I don't care who you are when addressing a president former or current you do so with respect and you defer IMO.  Bill Clinton ruined my life for a few years, and it's never quite recovered when he signed NAFTA, but if I ever was introduced to him I would say "It's a pleasure to meet you Sir."

Edit: which would be a lie because he's a stinking traitor to the working class Americans and I will dance in celebration the day he dies.

I suspect that's a problem with the editing software used, not a deliberate act.

Thats not of relevance to the topic but I agree with you that #45 absolutely deserved to get kicked out of the press conference.

It doesn't say anything about repeating frames, it says three frames showing the contact were paused. This is an ordinary technique used by the media to emphasize a point in a video or film.  It does make the incident look worse, but that in no mitigates the inappropriateness of his actions and demeanor toward the President.

As far as I’m aware —no-one has claimed to be able to replicate it using the same software that was used.

It’s a WSJ video article — so, not really pasteable. 

This, however, should suffice:

Many social media users accused Ms Sanders of posting footage which sped up the contact to make Mr Acosta’s movement appear more aggressive.

But according to analysis by The Independent, the video instead appears to have been doctored to freeze for three frames the moment before Mr Acosta’s hand pushes down on the aide’s arm.

There's no question that he made contact; the illuminated video shows he clearly did. Having their own methodology used against one of their own, rankles the media.

BS. There is a side by side video on top of this page. It’s the exact same video

Considering it is literally unprecedented for a reporter to behave in such a disrespectful way to a U.S. president, why doesn't the incident concern you?  Do you find such behavior acceptable with all future presidents?

What do you think a repeating frame is, exactly?

Not when it’s used in real-time playback to replace other frames.

All it did was show the exact same frames to clearly delineate the contact. Nothing was fabricated. It's the same technique used in sports video reviews of questioned calls.

You know there’s this thing called video-editing software, where you can examine each frame in detail, right?

Obviously not since you've been reduced to profanity. You don't dispute what he did, you just don't like the way they nailed him for it. Tough.

If you prefer the longhand version — your first problem is that the man who made the video — Paul Joseph Watson, editor-at-large for InfoWars — is claiming he didn’t manipulate it, at all.

Your second problem is that no sports video editing ever uses micro-pausing — let alone overwriting the following frames with such pauses.

In short — your explanation is what we Brits would characterize as being utter b******s — but I’m pretty sure I’ve already mentioned that.

Not sure which part of me repeatedly saying that I don’t care about the incident itself you’ve been unable to grasp yet.

Same technique combined with real-time footage and you've made it perfectly clear, time and again, what you really care about.:rolleyes: Brits? I thought that term was offensive.

The official spokesperson for the President of the United States using a doctored video lifted from a white supremacist conspiracy website as a propaganda tool. As far as I can tell, that's what he really cares about.

Strangely enough, very few conservatives on here seem to care.

No more than you guys cared When Obama used the FBI against a journalist, raiding and seizing his parents home and property searching for sources of leaks.
