California YouTuber Dana Ashlie released a YouTube video accusing CBS News of using footage of a hospital in Italy and passing it off as a hospital in New York City.
Yesterday, CBS News fessed up and admitted to using footage from Italy in their NYC Coronavirus report.
The video goes on to show a compilation of footage citizen reporters are taking at hospitals nationwide. The video already has nearly a half-million views in less than 2 days.
Some people are blaming Dana Ashlie of spreading coronavirus disinformation. Others are praising her for encouraging people to find out what’s happening in their community for themself, and not relying on the media.
Watch it for yourself and you be the judge.
