ABC documentary producers caught in sting!

If only they had brought Kruschev!
Documentary producers negotiate what to do about the surprise cameras with Joanne Nova and husband in the kitchen

ABC here is the Australian Broadcast Network

When the Smith and Nasht came to our house (on behalf of the ABC) to take footage for the “I can change your mind” documentary, David and I asked fellow skeptic and camera-man Barry Corke if he could film them filming us, so we have our own copy of what happened. He agreed — it was obvious to all of us that we needed some insurance against biased edits. We all knew that petty chicanery was possible. James Delingpole had recently given the BBC three good hours of his time, only to find they trimmed all of his clever answers down, waited for him to have a hypoglycemic vague moment and then crowed about how the great James Delingpole was, can you believe, tongue tied (the failure!)

It just goes to show what all should know about TV news: if you give people power and a camera, they will lie (and continue to as they must keep up appearances for the casual observers who can’t see the tangled web.)

There’s uncut video at the link which begins with wrangling over the extra cameras that were used as insurance.  It seems that this was done as a surprise! An agreement was reached that the insurance video could only be used in full, uncut.
