Following the various shocking videos released to the public by the Center for Medical Progress, we were quickly told that the videos were selectively edited. Nancy Pelosi took such a position, but at the same time admitted that she hadn’t actually watch the videos. Personally, I don’t think any liberals actually bothered to watch the videos before parroting the claim that they had been doctored, because none seem to be able to specifically point to which videos were doctored and where or how. To lend some credibility to the claim, Planned Parenthood paid a democratic opposition research firm to produce a study on the videos, which, not surprisingly, claimed to find evidence that the videos were doctored.
We now have a study from Coalfire Systems, the largest independent IT auditor in the country, which dispels the propaganda that PP had to pay a democratic research firm to produce. To quote from the reporting at ADF Media:
“This conclusion is supported by the consistency of the video file date and time stamps, the video timecode, as well as the folder and file naming scheme,” the report states. “The uniformity between the footage from Investigator 1’s camera and Investigator 2’s camera also support the evidence that the video recordings are authentic.” The report also confirms that “edits made to the Full Footage videos [for the shorter YouTube videos] were applied to eliminate non-pertinent footage, such as restroom breaks, meals, and other similar periods lacking pertinent conversation.”
“The Coalfire forensic analysis removes any doubt that the full length undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress are authentic and have not been manipulated,” said ADF Senior Counsel Casey Mattox. “Analysts scrutinized every second of video recorded during the investigation released by CMP to date and found only bathroom breaks and other non-pertinent footage had been removed. Planned Parenthood can no longer hide behind a smokescreen of false accusations and should now answer for what appears to be the very real crimes revealed by the CMP investigation.”
Will liberals finally stop repeating the myth that the PP videos were doctored now that they’ve been proven wrong? Help us get the word out and share this article on social media.
