Remember when CNBC live edited the parallel stream that was supposed to be mirroring the United States Congressional Hearing about the January 2021 Buy Freeze? Interesting what they took out. Here it is and to music. John Stewart should cover skewed media coverage on stocks.

FOCAL VIDEO



Ordeal Summary:

  • Here is a link to the CNBC coverage – 2 seconds – before the moment the video has a jump cut.

  • Here is a link to the source Government live stream with the missing 10 minutes and 18 seconds starting where the CNBC video cuts off. The edit was made between timestamps 2:37:34 and 2:47:52.

  • [Side-by-side videos playing simultaneously for comparison](can’t link)

  • Here is a direct youtube clip with only the missing CNBC footage.

  • Here is the context to what is being talked about in the beginning.

Conjecture & Hypothetical Analysis: If the edit were to have occurred on purpose during the live feed, there would be complaints of interruptions in the CNBC live stream feed. Redditors who watched it live on the CNBC feed have reported interruptions at that time in history on reddit. One said they switched to the government stream when it started to cut out. If the live feed didn’t have interruptions, which it supposedly did, CNBC would have to have used a staggered start in order to maintain a buffer, and then someone in the editing room to skip it forward.
