9/11: Now In 3-D! With CG! Soon To Be A Theme-Park Ride!

Posted by codemorse

From US News:

The controversial video of the burning World Trade Center towers in a television campaign ad for Ohio Sen. Mike DeWine is doctored, U.S. News has learned. The television spot, which has been lambasted by critics as a political exploitation of the Sept. 11, attacks Democrat challenger Rep. Sherrod Brown for being weak on national security....

DeWine's office acknowledged the error. "The Senator was unaware that the image of the towers was a graphic representation and has instructed the campaign to replace the footage with a picture of the Twin Towers," his office said in a statement on Wednesday evening. DeWine spokesman Brian Seitchik says the image of the burning towers in the ad is a still photo with computer-generated smoke added.

You've got to be kidding me.

9/11 wasn't horrific enough? Now we've got to dress the day up with extra smoke and special effects? Aren't conservatives supposed to hate Hollywood? Why are they borrowing CGI tricks from the "Left" coast, then?
