Watching daily news and updates is indeed a part of life of many concerned citizens. Watching over current news and issues, as well as weather reports.
In an ordinary day of BBC news reporting a ‘breaking news’ about the May leadership challenge, a child appeared to ‘teleport’ into the report clip.
As seen on the video, A woman seems to be explaining something to the interviewer. A few moments later, a child suddenly appears to have passed by the woman. Sharp-eyed netizens were quick to spot the child’s appearance.
In no time after the report, Twitter was roaring with questions about the appearance of the child. Many were shocked about the incident and thought of tracking the kid down. With the modern day technology, anything is possible. While others treated this lightly as a joke.
Tom Richell – head of The independent, a bristish news website shared to everyone that this ‘teleporting’ child was a mere product of editing glitch. Wherein, it was a bad edit from BBC maybe due to the rush release of the clip since its tagged as breaking news. Encouraging the viewers to rewatch the video and notice the woman’s weird head movement as the same as the boy’s weird appearance.
In conclusion, the boy wasn’t a teleporter; he was merely a product of rush and bad video edit.
Circulation of fake news is quite rampant nowadays. All we could do is to be more vigilant, look at possible angles of the story, do your research and don’t believe right away. Proper investigation and logical reasoning must be used in most life cases.
