video said to be of NYT reporters discussing whether to hiss or boo TrumpA video posted to YouTube on Tuesday is said to catch reporters at the New York Times deciding whether to cheer or boo President-elect Donald Trump on his arrival at Trump Tower.

According to the report, one reporter wanted to remain “oddly silent” while others “disagreed” and elected to “hiss and boo.”

The Gateway Pundit posted a transcript of the video:

Reporter 1: Tommy… Tommy… Tommy… They’re rolling…

Reporter 2: They’re rolling.

Reporter 2: Cheers or Boos from the crowd… What say you guys?

Reporter 3: (Laughter)

Reporter 2: Boo…

Here’s the video:

We watched the video several times and while those words are clearly heard, it’s not clear who, exactly, made the statements, and it’s impossible to know if they were actually reporters for the Times.

Additionally, the voices seem to be much closer to the microphone than the rest of the crowd, so it’s not certain if the statements were made at the time the camera was rolling or if they were dubbed in later.

We looked to find a woman talking with three men at the time of the statements and were unable to see anything that would match what we heard.  That doesn’t mean it didn’t happen, just that we didn’t see anything to match the statements.  And it’s quite possible the individuals involved were outside the camera’s field of view.

There’s another possibility which seems to make more sense to me — the individuals in question could’ve been debating how the crowd in front of them would react upon Trump’s arrival.  Again, there’s nothing to provide any context or additional information.

Sadly, given all the bias and fake stories we’ve seen (and continue to see) from the so-called “mainstream media,” it’s quite easy to believe that the statements were made by reporters.

Unfortunately, without further verification, we have to remain just a little bit skeptical.
