Unless a natural disaster happened in your back yard, how would you ever know from the images they show on the news if they were actually using real, live footage, or file footage?
I hate to say this, but to me, all natural disaster footage looks the same: the aftermath of a tornado, hurricane destruction, tsunamis, floods, third world country warring…
Seriously? How would you ever know if they just recycled some old file footage from another disaster or another middle eastern war? They should have someone hold up a newspaper or something proving the date of filming.
I hope I'm not sounding like a complete moron here, but does anyone else feel like it just all looks the same? Hey, I like to watch a good train wreck as much as the next person (I LOVE natural disaster footage, especially things involving the power of water... don't know why). Maybe I can't tell the difference between live footage and file footage because I'm directionally challenged and have no idea where I am ever, thus making myself unable to identify the surroundings of each particular natural disaster?
Just food for thought people... don't take it all too seriously and go all P.C. on me.
