I was told by a city official today that attended the meeting that it WAS NOT EDITED, Teri did lower her voice because ‘she probably’ should not have mentioned the events that have NOT been booked yet.
I will accept the argument, for now.
I had an audio guru give me a graphic of the obvious voice over levels-
He said this, “The overdubs are at :41 and :51, and that’s the section I took a screen shot at. The second one isn’t as noticeable in the screenshot, but the first one is OBVIOUS.”
Here is the MP3: TeriSchmidt
I caught this a few weeks back, but decided to re-watch, and re-visit the meeting. Teri’s testimony was edited with a voice over after the meeting was recorded. Not sure why, but I’m sure it was to correct something she may have mis-spoke about (FF: 23:00, there are 2 voice overs between 23-24 minutes).
It has something to do with ‘prospects’.
While I appreciate the CVB and the city wanting to get the correct information out there, it is a little troubling that 1) We don’t know what she said wrong (unless you attended the actual meeting) and 2) public meetings are essentially being censored.
A more appropriate approach would be to stop the video after the wrongful statement was made and on a blank screen present audio of the correction.
Regular readers of this website know I am anti-censorship. I hope in the future the city edits these videos in a more appropriate manner. If not, maybe a call to my old friends will ensue.
