John Bolton dodges question from anti-war vet about blowback, insults him; Fox edits out the audience booing and replaces with it applause. [Updated]

Chris | InformationLiberation

"I was in the audience for the taping. Bolton was booed when taking the stage, at which point one of the show's producers hissed at us and said something about "allowing a fair debate". In spite of that, he was then booed overwhelmingly after giving his back-handed insult of an answer to the young vet at the microphone. You can hear a bit of her hissing and shushing again during the clip when the boos start up." - Via r/Libertarian

Note, this isn't the first time FOX was caught editing out boos and replacing it with applause, one year ago FOX was caught editing footage from CPAC where Ron Paul won the straw poll and was cheered, they edited the cheers out and replaced them with boos! They later said it was a "mistake" and they just so happened to have edited in footage from the previous year.

UPDATE: Stossel just released the full unedited video of the question at hand. It shows the vet was edited out of the clip and John Bolton was not cheered, but it does not show he was booed after his response was over.

In the unedited clip you can hear a slight hiss/murmur after Bolton's response at which point the vet responds saying, "Nothing was violated sir, that's what I'm saying.."

Stossel cuts him off and says, "Well, we can't debate this whole thing now, let's just go on to one more questioner, thank you."

At that point there was some applause which seemed to me to be directed towards the vet, whom Stossel just thanked, and not Bolton. (This was all cut, regardless, but Stossel seems to think this was the applause edited into the footage which actually aired, it wasn't.)

Another person in a black shirt then gets to the mic, this is the person seen in the edited video above leaving after the vet's question was asked, he asks a different question on internet freedom which Stossel says they cut due to time, Bolton is applauded after it (he gave a populist response) and Stossel announces the end of the segment and teases the next one. (This is the footage they seamlessly edited in which gave the impression Bolton got applause. It should be noted Fox overlaid applause before Bolton's response was even done, where there should have been silence while he was finishing his statement, there was instead applause. [1:44-1:45])

The two videos frankly give a very different impression, while Stossel says it was an edit due to time, which is believable (and certainly, much more believable than Fox's claim from last year they accidentally edited in footage from the previous year's CPAC), the editing still gave a very different impression from what actually happened.

69249 He completely dodged the question and tried to redirect the audience's focus to what he calls a "dis-service" that this veteran of war is doing, by simply speaking his mind and asking an intelligent question- which, again, was completely ignored.

69249 and, hmmm. he's a film maker- i wonder why he got kicked out of the army?---was he perhaps borrowing equipment to try to expose some shit that was going on over there and got caught by the Man and kicked out? that's just conjecture. But why do we just accept what we are told all the time? Real life is not following orders- you have to think objectively about what orders are and right and wrong- and who is giving the order and whether what they are ordering you to do is in fact honorable. Not just because they tell you it is.

86181 FOX news should be ashamed of themselves. Doctoring a tv programme so as Bolton looks better to the national viewers. That is a fucking outrage. Heads would roll if this sort of behaviour happened on UK TV

68177 Had to respond back to some of these lol. So you all really think the Government(Ill give it to ya, they are controlled by business's via lobbiest however can still say no to those lobbiest) has no control over what content is aired on a news network that provides it's channel to the US??? really??? tell me one news network that reports things like this? Muslim judge threw a case out of assault as an atheist insulted Mohammad and the muslim attacked him and the judge is upholding Sharia law in the US? Shouldn't this be on the main stream news? no? too controversial? says who? think the news organizations would go after a story like that to get awesome ratings, so why would they not.....? please tell me all about how you know these news networks are not being controlled 100% by the "greater good". thanks, I'll check back on this post as soon as I can :).

Defending against anti fox allegations by using a fox business article? You can't possibly think that that's a good idea...

17429 dude i know this guy and he is a total douche, he got kicked out of ranger battalion and he only went on 1 mission, and not to mention that he tried to put in an objector packet AND GOT DENIED!!! what an absolute disgrace to the the REAL Rangers of 3rd ranger bat... he was always looking for a way out because he is a coward and was afraid of combat... his corporal "friend" that got killed was one of the real rangers that fought and died with honor. David West is a coward and should hang his head in shame instead of saying that he is a war veteran. RLTW... in which David West has not relevant knowledge of what we do overseas because he quit after 1 mission and was on kitchen duty for the duration of his deployment
