Re: It's a weird world...
"But, his video edited out some crucial elements, like armed insurgents with the Reuters people."
Hmm, that sentence sounds like they were airbrushed out of the video. AFAIK the video had a commentary that misrepresented the presence of the armed personnel but the video wasn't specifically edited to remove digital content (it selectively slowed down some parts to add commentary).
I would agree there was commentary that was probably unneeded which politicised it, but the video itself did represent the reality of what happened, you just need to hear several commentaries describing what you are seeing to get a balanced picture.
