The visual representation of untreated mental illness.

Caught on tape when Reuters ordered its cameraman to cut live footage of Trump receiving praise from African-American Bishop Wayne T. Jackson in Detroit.

The incident occurred as Jackson presented Trump with a shawl, a bible, and offered his prayers as the black audience cheered and clapped.

Perhaps aware of the devastating impact the optics of this moment would have on the media’s efforts to demonize Trump as a racist bigot, a voice is heard off-camera saying, “He’s getting a shawl!”

The cameraman then says, “I’m shooting this, I don’t care what they say….I’ll take a demotion for this…. you?”

“Shut it down,” insists the director,” followed by another voice asking, “Shut this down??”

“Yes Michael, do it,” orders the director.

We then hear the word “blackout” and the camera shakes before the live feed is cut.

“Reuters was primary video feed for the event, all other video delivery services were coming from the Reuters feed. When Reuters shut down, all other outlets lost the broadcast,” reports the Conservative Treehouse.

Right Side Broadcasting responded to the controversy by offering the cameraman a job, promising to pay him much more than Reuters.

They aren't doing shit like this. This is made up phony baloney ballocks. See below a different version without the overdub.

I'm surprised how many people here just accepted this bullshit without any critical examination of the claims made. Lies, bullshit and rather stupid Trumpism. Reuters wasn't even running the camera crew at all, CBS was. The feed was cut off at the request of Trump staffers.

"Sopan Deb, a CBS journalist who was the pool producer for the event at the Detroit church, said the decision to cut off the video feed was made because Trump campaign staffers were hurrying reporters into a waiting motorcade.

"I was the pool producer," Deb said in a tweet. "We were forced to pack up our cameras and leave during this.""

Not looking at anyone in particular, Flee.

It's really a lack of care. This topic is not worth that much of my time.
