This is what we will see a lot more of next year..

“Distorted videos of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), altered to make her sound as if she’s drunkenly slurring her words, are spreading rapidly across social media, highlighting how political disinformation that clouds public understanding can now spread at the speed of the Web,” the Washington Post reports.

“The video of Pelosi’s onstage speech Wednesday at a Center for American Progress event, in which she said President Trump’s refusal to cooperate with congressional investigations was tantamount to a “coverup,” was subtly edited to make her voice sound garbled and warped. It was then circulated widely across Twitter, YouTube and Facebook.” A version posted by the right-wing Facebook page Politics WatchDog has already been viewed more than 1.6 million times.

How can you tell the difference between doctored and real Pelosi? Heck, on radio news, CBS several times, she sounds slurred. Is the WaPo going to allege that CBS doctored the audio?

It is also funny how the WaPo seems upset when it is one of their own that is allegedly given this treatment. Selective indignation to say the least.

You guys seem kind of obsessed with making powerful women look bad. Why is that?

You guys seem kind of obsessed with making powerful women look bad. Why is that?
Because honestly it works. Women are always supposed to look clean, neat and respectful. Never even wear the same colors too many times. Also women get knocked for looking haggard, weary, tired and are almost always assumed to be sick if they dont look perfect. Not even politicians but in real life everyday.
