It is unfortunate that his mic was malfunctioning in the hall. Is there any evidence it was intentional?
Also, I watched the debate on tv and I heard nothing to indicate thar sound was affected for the millions viewing the debate on tv, so I wonder how much of an affect it actually had on the debate outcome?
I agree. The report said that it didn't adversely affect the broadcast. However, it was a distraction for the man. I think we all know how little things can affect our performance and our confidence. Not saying the outcome would have been any different but the same was said when we found out there were shenanigans at the DNC.
That's just silly. I'm a Bernie believer. Bernie now supports Hillary because her policies most closely match his vision. Trump's ugliness is repulsive and scary. I looked at Johnson but he's not even close to my beliefs. Hillary is, by far, the best match.
All those investigations. And nothing. At some point, after. 7.1 million dollars and almost 4000 questions (Benghazi) resulting in no wrongdoing, you have to at least consider that Republicans are over reaching and wasting everyone's time and money.
Somewhere in the mid-1990s I started asking myself, "Who benefits from all these accusations of scandal about the Clintons?" There was literally one right after the other. I finally realized, the Republicans benefit from them. Once you realize that, you don't jump every time someone throws another one out there.
A defective mike? Hand signals? Something hidden inside her clothing? Seriously? Isn't it more likely the man is just out of his depth?
Well, since they admitted that there was a problem I assume there was. It's kind of like deflate gate. A minor change that can affect the outcome. Was it planned or an accident? It's a simple question.
Funny how no one is allowed to ask questions about Hillary without it being some vast right wing conspiracy. That's always her defense.
DEFECTIVE Mic? ~ ~ That was "Delusional Donald's" FIRST Ridiculous Excuse for his CATASTROPICALLY Epic Debate FAILURE, even though NOBODY in the Auditorium nor at HOME had a PROBLEM Hearing is Incoherent BABBLINGs ~
That excuse didn't WORK, so he's MOVED on to "OLD Faithful", the "DEBATE WAS RIGGED" which WORKs with a tiny PORTION of his SHRINKING Crowd of FANz ~ ~
ANYWAY, what have we LEARNED? ~ The FACT that Donald can be Easily INDUCED into a "Deranged Uncontrollable TIZZY" by a supposed "Crackling Microphone" & "Miss UNIVERSE" ~
Hillary blamed Trump and the Russians for the DNC hack. It was intelligence within the NSA, to help derail her presidency because they are smart enough to know she cannot be trusted with classified information.
Lying Hillary Clinton claimed that Russia hacked the DNC's emails to help Donald Trump in the 2016 race, but former NSA official William Binney, an architect of the agency's surveillance program, says that it is more likely that a member of the U.S. intelligence community leaked the emails.
On "Fox and Friends" this morning, Binney said that accusing the Russians is a way of diverting attention from the actual issues that the emails bring to light.
Colorfulone: For about the tenth time here on HP, please check out Pulitzer Prize-winning Politifact for Hillary's scores on truthfulness as opposed to Donald's. It's 45% to 4%. Then come up with an adjective for her that is more accurate. Maybe, qualified?
Okey, here's how it works. The US Army had Hillary Clinton on their training website as a "Security Threat" for 18 months. That gets revealed and all of a sudden her photo gets pulled off the US Army website, and they say someone made a mistake? Nice to have friends!
Hillary certainly was an insider security threat, and still is IMHO. Email scandal. She takes in big bucks from terrorist countries. The Clinton Mafia? Scandal after scandal...fabrication after fabrication.
Even if it had been only him who was aware of it (which it wasn't) can you imagine yourself in that position? One of the most important moments in your life, you know s lot depends on that moment, and you have an obvious irritant, an irritant which negatively effects your performance. Not only does no one do anything about it but you are laughed at for mentioning it.
Sorry. I think it is important to know if it was rigged.
I just googled looking for it. I don't know the answer to that, but I did find this:
An audio engineer posted a comment about the microphone picking up Drumpf’s “sniffles” to Yahoo News. The engineer wrote that the sound man for the event must have “been asleep” concluding that it was rigged for Hillary as this wasn’t an event where you can just stop monitoring audio.
“This makes total sense from an audio engineering aspect. First, Drumpf could NOT hear the broadcast sound, but he could very clearly tell that the sound in the room was not loud enough. That’s why he kept moving closer to the mike (sic). Podium microphones like that are sensitive, so the sound man uses compression, a limiter and a gate. The compression evens out the louder and softer sounds. The limiter stops the volume at a point below where there would be clipping or distortion. The gate is the level at which things have to be loud ENOUGH to be heard through the microphone. This keeps breathing sounds and other room noise from being amplified by the mike. The sound man HAD to be asleep at the switch to not adjust for this. This was not a “set and forget” event.”
“When Drumpf moved the mike closer to his mouth and leaned into the mike the sound of his breathing was loud enough to pass the gate and the compressor (and possibly an expander depending on the situation) made the sounds of his breathing closer to the volume of his speech. You don’t need 35 years of audio experience (like me) to know this.”
Proof? No. Reason to continue to raise an eyebrow? Yes.
I didn't submit it as proof of anything. It simply shares an opinion. And, I'll have to be honest with you. I would think someone else other than Trump would be aware of the microphone problem and would have attempted to address it.
