...Morrow and Walter Cronkite! I knew that NBC faked reports like this, but CBS, too?
"CBS issued an apology today for footage of Tesla car that had been dubbed over with the sound of a traditional engine...."
So the "60 Minutes" was faked... why? To what purpose?
My distrust of all things NBC News is well-known and thoroughly documented, from the faked footage of the exploding gas tank in a GM truck to the fraudulently edited tape of the George Zimmerman 9-1-1 call, the broadcaster is out-and-out dishonest and none of its information is to be trusted.
I had higher hopes for CBS, but I just don't understand why the News Division thought that the footage of the Tesla required any sort of "enhancement."
The whole concept of "news footage" is that it is what it is, the unvarnished truth, so to speak!
My guess is someone wanted to accentuate the point that the car is fast, 0-60 in 4 seconds if I remember the segment correctly.
- When did Tesla cars start emphasizing performance over the "green" features?
- When did it become the job of news organizations to shill a manufacturer's product?
