Constructing the narrative. How the group mind is controlled.

"do you remember seeing the video in which Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the younger of the two suspects, sets his backpack down on the pavement a few moments before one of the bombs goes off? If so, you’re in good company: Lots of people do, including at least one federal appeals court judge in Massachusetts and one potential juror in the Tsarnaev case.

But if you think you haven’t seen it, you are right. In fact, it may not exist at all.

The public first heard about the video from then-Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick on “Meet the Press” on April 21, two days after Tamerland Tsarnaev died following a shootout with police and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured. Host David Gregory posed this question: “Is there anything on the videotape that maybe the public hasn’t seen about his reaction that was particularly telling that moved the investigation along?”

Patrick immediately said he had not seen the videotape. But, he said, “it does seem to – to be pretty clear that – that this suspect took the backpack off, put it down, did not react when the first explosion went off, and, and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion. So pretty, pretty clear about his, his involvement and pretty chilling, frankly, as it was described to me.”

The report began with what appears to be actual surveillance video the FBI used to pinpoint the Tsarnaevs. They are shown turning onto Boylston Street and walking, Dzhokhar carrying a backpack easily on his right shoulder. “Seven minutes later,” says correspondent Anne Thompson, “Dzhokhar Tsarnaev drops his knapsack at the metal barrier in front of the Forum restaurant.” By this time, though, we are looking not at a video but at a still photograph that shows the backpack on the ground and Dzhokar Tsarnaev a few feet away, apparently walking away. Then again, it could be a picture of him just walking by. The moment of his setting down the backpack is narrated but not shown.

a prospective juror said she couldn’t get that video out of her mind, and here was how she described it: “The image of him putting the backpack behind that little boy.” Even in the still shown by NBC, no little boy is visible. (The judge had ordered prospective jurors not to read, watch, or listen to anything about the case.)

The Associated Press’s Boston reporter used that juror to headline that day’s dispatch from court, saying that the juror was “describing an image authorities say shows Tsarnaev placing a bomb near 8-year-old Martin Richard, one of three people killed when twin bombs exploded near the marathon finish line April 15, 2013.” The story ran all over the country. Even Boston’s public radio station WBUR, whose own reporters have been supremely skeptical of the investigation, ran it and promoted it uncritically.

Anyone who is in the business of eliciting people’s memories about historic events knows that collective memory has a way of displacing personal experience. Maria Konnikova recently wrote in The New Yorker about psychological studies that show that people typically misremember what, when and how they learned about big things that happened just a couple of years earlier. Oles Adamovich and Daniil Granin, two Russian writers who compiled an oral history of the Siege of Leningrad, recalled that their subjects would spend hours reproducing received memories — stock stories that they had read in books or newspapers or seen in films — before getting to their own — if they ever did."


Fuck it. Copypasta.

Nice catch. This is the part where that False Memory Syndrome / CIA cunt starts making the media rounds.

Yeah, it'll just be how the media responds now. That there's video of him putting the bag down behind a little kid, and maybe a nice old nun or something.
Game, set, match.

Yeah...its the behaviour...the moving away swiftly...no interest in the boom that happened 10 seconds before...see all the heads turn left to look... not focusing on that is a stinker... what happened shortly beforehand to get the whole crowd to turn their heads left?
