Somewhere, George Orwell is chuckling, softly

Somewhere, George Orwell is chuckling, softly. “Senator Clinton was booed when she walked on stage last October at a rock concert in Madison Square Garden to benefit 9/11 victims. It was shown live by VH1 but, as ABC's John Stossel illustrated in a July 20/20 special on media distortions, when the Viacom-owned cable channel replayed it sound technicians replaced the booing with cheering and applause. And that version is the permanent record VH1 put onto its DVD of the event.” [They have so much nerve! Sheesh! I remember the booing clearly (and was not surprised by it). I wondered at the time that she could be so out of touch as to not realzie this would happen.] [Archipelago]
