Washington - An independent video producer tells The Associated Press a video tweeted by the White House on an interaction between CNN reporter Jim Acosta and a White House intern appears to have been manipulated to make the reporter’s actions look more aggressive.

Abba Shapiro did a side-by-side and frame-by-frame analysis of AP’s video from President Donald Trump’s contentious news conference Wednesday and the version spread on Twitter by Trump press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Shapiro says that when Acosta’s hand touches the intern’s arm as she reaches for his microphone, the action speeds up in the apparently altered video to accentuate his movement. Earlier in the video, Shapiro notices three frames that were frozen to slow down the action. This, Shapiro says, enables the manipulated video to run the same length as the original.

Sanders has not confirmed the source of the video she tweeted.

Fake news ad white noise to distract. I saw the press conference live. No alterations. I was shocked. Is it assault to simply push someone's hand away ? Who knows? But no one is arresting him for assault We all agree his behavior breached on assault and was unbefitting. The press pass is a privilege. This is the highest office. Even his belligerent tone against the president or Sanders is wrong. This was just overboard.

Glad the fake news always finds a nice spin to skirt the issue.

If you have no respect for the president, you do not belong in the white house. He may not have done anything illegal or enough to be arrested, but certainly enough to be thrown out. Obama threw out hecklers too.

You’re a nut. You support the evil obumer and dem-o-rats who are anti American anti religion. You support violent raciest hateful mobs. Like ATIFA which should be labeled a terrorist group.

You’re a tzevildevite chaya! How dare you you post such hateful and racist rhetoric?! Are you ok with people posting online about “this jew”? You can disagree with Obama, or even post your sentiment that he’s evil, but what chutzpah you have to use the “black” slur! What difference does his skin color make other than flat out racist generalization. Ugh!

Obviously many here have chosen to forget the horrendous treatment of Obama by the Fox network and by Trump himself.

Nothing against blacks but they didn't liberate you in Buchenwald. That's nonsense. And please don't find me the one anomaly of a black solider. It wasn't the norm.
Its true that it was because of discrimination but still stop playing your ww2 holocaust emotional shpiels

1) noone at Fox ever pushed away a wh staffer and a female.
2) They were not as nearly as provocative to his face in public like Acosta where you see the hate and they readiness for war before he started.

Glad his pass was revoked. Unbecoming of a prestigous journalist.

Got it tricky yoni?

Why not make the point without the "black neveila" reference?
