Here’s A Black Friday Stampede To Make You Glad You Didn’t Leave The House
Here’s the Saturday-after-Thanksgiving tradition: a smartphone video of a Black Friday riot. This is in Moultrie, GA, and the swarms of people are grabbing cheap pay-as-you-go smartphones. But it’s not the only shame to be happening, as the clip you’ve seen elsewhere isn’t legit.
The Daily Telegraph, you know, an august news organization paid to check their facts, posted a widely seen and heavily doctored clip with another piece of YouTube footage bolted on, that was itself stolen from another website.
Finding the original, real clip took us five minutes. So does that make us better journalists than The Daily Telegraph?
