Vox journalist Aaron Rupar did what all good journalists do: he scoured Twitter for her old tweets to see if there were any that could bring her down. We don’t think he quite hit paydirt, though, claiming that Sarah Isgur Flores pushed “conspiracy theories” about Planned Parenthood selling baby parts based on those “misleadingly edited” undercover videos.
CNN's new political editor pushed conspiracy theories about Planned Parenthood that were based on misleadingly edited videos https://t.co/aAugMf5XaL

Um, no. Be a crappy journalist, fine, but no rewriting history.
Except the 5th Circuit Court confirmed the opposite of this claim. The actual sentence from the decision: "[T]he record reflects that OIG had submitted a report from a forensic firm concluding that the video was authentic and not deceptively edited."https://t.co/fUxCnVZUw4 https://t.co/zG9d1Amt79

Liberals might not want to face it, but those videos were real and unedited: remember when Nancy Pelosi called for an investigation to see if the videos were faked, even though she admitted she hadn’t watched them?
At the time of this writing, Rupar’s tweet had been retweeted 921 times.
This is inaccurate. Don’t believe me? Ask the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, which considered the Planned Parenthood footage in a recent case and noted that a forensic firm concluded “the video was authentic and not deceptively edited.” https://t.co/XYaGOJVxnH

This is really embarrassing for you, but a federal court ruled that the videos weren't misleadingly edited.
Please try to keep up on the matters you tweet about.

Hey @atrupar — You’re repeating Planned Parenthood’s talking points, but the Fifth Circuit recently ruled on a Planned Parenthood case & included a footnote stating that a forensic firm reviewed these videos & concluded they were NOT deceptively edited.

A Court determined this is a lie. https://t.co/cGdT5g55qs

5th circuit one month ago: “[T]he record reflects that OIG had submitted a report from a forensic firm concluding that the video was authentic and not deceptively edited.”https://t.co/nhbAJc8bi2 https://t.co/TTSNZt0cAN

The videos that were affirmed by the 5th circuit? Yeah, those were real…

You don't actually pay much attention to the news, do you? Court has literally ruled that the videos were not edited. #Pounce

The fifth circuit court of appeals said they weren’t deceptively edited.

Narrator: but the videos did exist. They were not deceptively edited. https://t.co/Pja3I9MhUl

We do too … hey Brian Stelter, book Aaron Rupar for Sunday’s “Reliable Sources” and ask him about this tweet.
CBS News casually refers to undercover Planned Parenthood videos as 'now discredited' https://t.co/Tr0j1VtCdL
