A new cut of a video in which Glynn County police confront Ahmaud Arbery in a public park reveals that the original footage was edited in a suspicious fashion by the Guardian, who originally obtained the footage of the event from the
In the unedited version of the film released by Glynn County, Arbery behaves in a more threatening and abrasive fashion, including telling a police officer that, “Bitch, you hit me with that shit, bitch, you gone be fucked up.“
Watch the full unedited footage of the confrontation here. The interaction in question begins at 2.52.
The release of the footage by the Guardian appears to have intentionally edited out Arbery’s statement. An officer would go on to attempt to use a taser on Arbery during the heated confrontation.
Arbery was shot in killed in a confrontation with two other Georgia men in February, an event that has ignited a national racial controversy. Travis and Gregory McMichael have been charged with first degree murder in Arbery’s death, although the father and son maintain they were acting lawfully in self defense.
The footage of the 2017 police interaction is by no means definitive of the nature of the event that cost Arbery his life. But the selective edit from the Guardian does suggest that the mainstream media is willing to place a handicap on the narrative pushed by progressive protestors in the aftermath of the incident, even if it comes at the cost of an even-handed and nuanced analysis of the evidence.
Progressive activists have also targeted investigators and researchers who have published the video, hoping to obscure any presentation of supplementary evidence that could possibly be used by the defense in the tentative first-degree murder trial of the McMichaels.
Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War
The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.
The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.
Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.
Trump just said we fought Operation Desert Storm in the jungles of Vietnam, but please tell us again which Presidential candidate lacks cognitive functions.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.
A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.
