A clip showing UP CM Yogi Adityanath lashing out at an ANI cameraman while giving a byte after receiving his COVID vaccine neither 'edited' nor 'fake'. The subsequent video shared by ANI as the 'original' one appears to be a retake.
A video of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in which he can be seen lashing out at an ANI cameraperson has stirred up a controversy on social media platforms. As the video went viral, a section of users responded stating that the video is "fake", "dubbed over" and "edited" while the other side maintained that ANI quickly retracted its live broadcast and shared a "retake" where Adityanath cannot be heard saying the abusive word.
The contentious clip was shared on the official Twitter page of the Aam Aadmi Party with the caption, "WARNING: Fake Yogi's non-sanskari language ahead."
The video was shared by several other users on Twitter criticizing UP CM for lashing out at the cameraman. In this video, one can hear Adityanath thanking the country's scientists before getting distracted by a disturbance in the background. The UP chief minister then lowers his voice and can be heard saying, "kya karte ho ch*tiyapane ka..."
The video that is being claimed to be morphed was shot minutes after Adityanath received his COVID vaccine on Monday, 5 April.
Allegedly, News agency ANI retracted its live broadcast and shared another byte where Adityanath cannot be heard saying the swear word.
In our investigation, we found that the viral video that was first tweeted by ANI and, later, retracted, was neither fake nor edited. The subsequent byte shared by ANI without the swear word appears to be a retake.
Several Twitter users have pointed out that the two videos show different angles, different sentences spoken by the CM, and therefore are not the same.
Clearly, the video has been reshot by ANI as the statements and framing of the sentences made in the viral clip and the subsequent one shared by ANI are not the same. In the video reshot by the news agency, the CM does not mention the central health ministry.
shows the same clip at the 2.10 mark.
BOOM spoke to three news channels, which confirmed that they had received the first feed at 8 am, but ANI later sent them a note retracting the video.
In conclusion, a clip showing UP CM Yogi Adityanath lashing out at an ANI cameraman while giving a byte after receiving his COVID vaccine neither 'edited' nor 'fake'. The subsequent video shared by ANI as the 'original' one appears to be a retake.
