NBC News demands Trump campaign take down fake clip of reporter

January 26, 2024

NBC News has demanded that Donald Trump’s campaign remove a video that includes audio deceptively edited to seem like it comes from an NBC correspondent after the third presidential debate, two people familiar with the exchange told Semafor. The video in question, shared by a top Trump adviser, opens with authentic footage of NBC News senior Capitol Hill correspondent Garrett Haake previewing the debate for the network. It soon cuts to video of each candidate as a voiceover — in Haake’s voice — makes disparaging comments about the candidates. THIS IS A PARODY!”A Trump spokesperson highlighted LaCivita’s follow-up tweet but declined to comment further. An NBCUniversal spokesperson declined to comment.
