    was very different from everybody else's and also very different from other video evidence.  So I've got to wonder what his motivation was.

    That sentence, "I was very familiar with the AG, and like many news photogs, often worked very hard to get a photo that he did not appear in ..." is kind of weird.  

    •  The video released later was very different (0+ / 0-)

      from the video of Blumenthal later in the speech, too. And the point being emphasized continually that "ALL" the evidence should be mentioned so that the public can judge for themselves.

      You gloss over the several folks in that article who say they haven't heard many Blumenthal speeches, or were newly assigned to his campaign.

      Point being, as noted, the irony of leaving out a bit of information that does not accord with the rest of the desired impression, while complaining that the NYtime did exactly that, is....ironic.
