The report said, "A CBS News crew pulled medical professionals off the floor at the Cherry Medical Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to line up in their vehicles so a CBS film crew would have a long line for their COVID-19 coverage."

A registered nurse there told Project Veritas, "We could have done other stuff." And a supervisor said, "Apparently, the news crew wanted more people in the line."

O'Keefe said: "Our insider witnessed the whole thing and came to Project Veritas, because he knew we would protect him. The insider told us that medical personnel were taken away from treating patients and making the line longer for actual patients waiting for the COVID-19 test."

Fake news gonna fake.

Something fishy here. Don't know what, but doesn't pass the initial smell test.

CBS can't pull anybody out of the hospital.

And a RN said "We could have done other stuff." ??? So do it, CBS has no authority over you.

No surprise there, it’s what mainstream media does.

Hospitals are remarkable liberal. I have no doubt they'd help a f'd up narrative. Even if it means people dying.

CBS, especially their posts on Facebook, is faker news than those Russian trolls in 2016 that they keep complaining about. They are still reposting that old story about which states are the most heavily armed, based on their gun registration statistics, that says Wyoming is number 1, with over 110,000 "registered guns" - WTF? Washington, D.C., where it's nearly impossible to buy, own or carry a gun came in second.

Just remember that the more the kooky Left lies and schemes and creates hoaxes, the stronger President Trump gets in the polls. So don't let fake news stories get you down. They serve the greater good. #endgame

I agree. This just doesn't sound quite right. From the tone of some of those quoted in the article, it sounds like they were unwilling participants in this.

How can CBS force these people to comply? They can't.

Oh I believe it 110%. Common practice- especially for a feature length story or profile, as opposed to a hard news/live/pool coverage situation.

I own a video production company now, but used to be a broadcast & non-broadcast field producer in Chicago.

There was nothing worse than showing up to cover a story/event/profile that was 'dead.' No participants, no action, a few people standing around doing nothing. You can't pack up and go home- your boss and your bosses boss is expecting some good TV. The editor back at the studio has a 3 min black hole in this week's show just waiting to be filled with your content, the cameraman is chomping at the bit to get at least 3 'hero shots' for his reel, the freelance sound guy has a new baby and needs to wrap this story by noon so he can jet out to the next gig to double dip for the day.
The pressure is on, so you get resourceful and make it happen.

Well, while I rather doubt that professional health care workers would allow themselves to be pulled from treating patients just because some news crew asked them to, might someone working at the health center, with an agenda of their own, and having authority over the health care workers, ask for it to happen?

If so, might that be because the person in authority wanted it to happen for his/her own reason (press coverage?), or because of a discussion that had occurred between the person and someone from the news organization (calling to arrange for the news crew to visit)?

There are always questions leading to more questions when investigating something that may or may not have happened.

There's sometimes no shortage of people who may have the knowledge of the matter at hand, but who wish to deny having any knowledge or responsibility, too. o_O

Things that make you go, hmmmm?

It's not like anyone working for a news agency has ever fabricated, mislead or portrayed something as other than it was, though, is it? Which is enough to make a reasonable person question things.

It's not like people won't willingly lie, either. Who can you trust? Who do you want to trust?

I personally don't trust a ****ing word that comes out of any copy read on any of the MSM news sources, and haven't since the days of Bill Clinton.

It just gets worse as the years go by because NO ONE is holding them accountable for their lies and misleading bull****.

They claim to have hidden videos, yet don't provide them. We're in the golden age of cell phones and social media, but they can't produce a single video, photo, or even a tweet from anyone. A preliminary search can't even associate those named in the article and their professions with the medical center.

As Jordan Peterson has said, free speech is a fantastic thing. Don't let them get you riled. Let them speak so that everyone can see how crazy they are. Holds true here too.
