I’m a bit relieved, actually, that they didn’t interrupt a soldier’s funeral to make a political ad — but should we otherwise be concerned?
You remember that video of a soldier’s funeral shown at the Republican Convention on Tuesday night? The funeral depicted in the video was stock footage, staged by actors — see “Fake soldiers used in RNC video.”
But might we worry about a trend? The video makers also screwed up and put up footage of a Walter Reed Middle School in a portion of a film intended to depict Walter Reed Hospital. The principal of the school disavowed any connection to the campaign. Oops.
Why not just stick to the facts that we have?
