Here he comes…. walking down the street: The amazing Teleport Boy. The “amazing” part of it is that the BBC reporter didn’t immediately rush across and ask how he appeared so miraculously out of thin air.Alternatively, we may conclude that BBC TV interviewers are doctoring their footage to make it seem Theresa May has more support than in reality. Which seems more likely to you?
Here’s a curiosity picked up by Another Angry Voice – it’s an interview with a member of the public who apparently supports Theresa May, in which a child suddenly appears out of nowhere in the background.
Check it out for yourself:
Truly amazing bit of editing from the BBC to make it look like a member of the public is happy with Theresa May.

Here's that weird edit from BBC News slowed down to 30% of its original speed.
If that's not trying to manipulate footage into making someone look like they're happy talking about Theresa May, I don't know what is. pic.twitter.com/iQXwK897YE

It seems the BBC wasn’t happy with its own support of Theresa May in her time of need – the Corporation had to manufacture some by doctoring interview footage.
I should point out that doctoring interview quotes – altering them to make it seem as though the person is saying something they did not – is forbidden among reputable journalistic organisations.
To see the BBC faking support for the prime minister in this fashion is a betrayal of everyone who pays the licence fee. We want to fund genuine news – not propaganda.'
