CNN's Anderson Cooper Caught Faking Interview In Front Of Blue Screen Background

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Sunday, February 17, 2013 by: J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) The one thing about technology is that it can come back to bite you at some point. For CNN, that has happened on more than one occasion.

The network became famous for its supposedly live broadcasts during the first Gulf War in 1991, when it sent its journalists – supposedly – to the front lines to cover the drama as it unfolded. In this broadcast, for instance, it appears as though then CNN correspondent Charles Jaco and another reporter, Charles Rochelle, were caught in a potential SCUD attack in the middle of a broadcast.

At one point in the video, viewers can hear air-raid (or, in this case, missile-raid) sirens going off. A graphic at the bottom-left of the screen says, “Saudi Arabia,” while on the bottom-right there is a graphic that says CNN Live. As the sirens wail, Jaco and the other reporter grab “air raid gear” – Jaco puts on a gas mask while Rochelle grabs a military-style Kevlar helmet (why both wouldn’t have gas masks, since then-Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein had threatened to launch chemical weapons at coalition forces, is not clear – yet).

It all looks and sounds real, of course. But it’s not.

CNN is not news but infotainment at best

The next scenes feature backstage shots of the Saudi Arabia “set” – an entire news crew, complete with fake props.

Turns out Jaco, Rochelle and their crew aren’t in Saudi Arabia at all. They are on a sound set near the CNN headquarters in Atlanta, a faked broadcast that the cable news channel eventually had to quietly admit.

The video contains clips of Jaco and crew clowning around. Jaco holds up a mock SCUD missile with a rag attached to its tail that acts as a rocket “plume.” The CNN reporter goes on to joke about how “they always call an ‘all clear’” when he orders his “burger and fries.” He clowns around about other things as well.

Fast-forward to today. CNN is up to its old tricks, this time with Anderson Cooper acting as the “live, on-the-scene” reporter who is, quite obviously, somewhere else other than where he says he is.

According to radio and TV host Alex Jones, a close examination of this Cooper broadcast, in which the host claimed he was standing in front of a church in Newtown, Conn., at a funeral for one of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Just more proof that the lame stream media cannot be trusted! If you want the truth to what is going on in the world, you will not find it by flipping through the TV channels,it is infested with lies and propaganda.

      This is so true and thay do it all the time. This is just the one you have cought them on. CNN is the worst one for doing this. Hell, this is CNN’s SOP but they all do it to some point and play us for the fools. Yes thats right, they think we are all fools. The real qustion hear is, are we?

      Truthers funny how the libs openly hate them. This is the administration that is so TRANSPARENT. So I guess they let the biased media do there lying. Anderson Cooper is a joke any way. Biggest story he ever broke is when he came out of the closet. To bad CNN wouldn’t spend a little more time on the Heroes fighting for their right to lie to the public.

      Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.
      The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.
      Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.
      What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?
      How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?
      And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?
      But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
      They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.
      Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

        @ becky14
        I am 100% on your side Becky, but the problem is being created by another race that is determined to rule the world.
        Therefore what better way can you think of to inflict hatred that will embroil into a killing spree when SHT happens which will be soon.This has been happening through out History.
        It stopped for a while after 1940 Hmmm and things like the Worlds economy that was no longer controlled by them, got back to near Normal.After initiating disasters that will be excused as”Natural” all remaining Life will have to struggle just to stay fed and alive.
        Those instigators wil have an easy task tol pick up the spoils when we have killed each other off.
        They however must eliminate Guns that compete with those used by the Military.
        They are so sinister that most Americans are still oblivious and protect their race.
        They want all of us dead with the exception of a number of slaves.
        Don’t’ believe me go ahead and read it in their own satanic Scriptures:
