Convincinly Real

| | Comments (0)
The video ONN: Breaking News: Something Happening in Haiti is so close to a real news broadcast that I did not realize it was not one until they assumed the reporter was shot.  The news anchor speaks dramatically, the visuals are flashy, and they show the same visual over and over again.  The most convincing part, however, was their uncertainty with what exactly was going on.  The news anchor jumped between assuming there was a riot in Haiti, an election, and a parade.  Often, real news stories jump around as well, not giving clear information. 

The funniest part of this video is the news stories scrolling at the bottom... "Light rain halts search for missing children."
