“False video of Joe Biden viewed 1 million times on Twitter”

CNN:

A deceptively edited video of Joe Biden making it appear the Democratic presidential nominee forgot what state he was in was viewed more than one million times on Twitter over the weekend.In the video, Biden addresses a crowd — saying,”Hello, Minnesota!” The event did, indeed, take place in St Paul, Minnesota.

In the unedited, original video, signs in front of and behind Biden on the stage read “Text MN to 30330” — making it clear the event was in Minnesota.However in the false video, the on-stage signs were edited to read “Tampa, Florida,” and “Text FL to 30330.”

The video was shared on Twitter by a person who accused Biden of forgetting what state he was in.One version of the false video circulating on Twitter was viewed more than 1.1 million times in less than 24 hours.close dialog
