China Will Stop At Nothing

CNN reports that some of the footage used in the world wide broadcast of the 2008 Beijing Olympics opening ceremony was prepared footage – not live, and some were even computer generated. Some people may find that dishonest, but then, isn’t it dishonest to superimpose sponsors’ logos and athlete information on the screen when in fact, it is not floating around in mid-air at the stadium? Who told you those were super-imposed? Nobody. You just know. And as spectators living in the 21st century, we should just be able to tell apart the difference between live footage and a computer generated one. It is said that, “The one who gets tricked, is at fault”.
