Norman Farrell caught Global TV red-handed.
He was watching coverage of the vandalism on Yonge Street, when he noticed something.
During the live newscast, I recognized footage that originated in Vancouver during the Olympics when vandals broke a few windows and tipped over newspaper boxes. As you will see in the photos, captured from Global TV's July 10 5:30pm national news, one of the newspaper boxes being tipped was The Province. This happened on a Vancouver street February 13, 2010. In a case of yellow journalism, Global was trying to make the Toronto demonstrations more dramatic by spicing it with extra footage.
I guess by July 10, people were getting bored looking at the same old boring burning cop cars and boring windows being broken, so some genius at Global thought: 'Hey! We got more good visuals! Nobody will ever notice that those are newspaper boxes from another city.'
Go see for yourself.
