    PBS apologizes for Fourth of July broadcast that used previous years’ fireworks footage
    Viewers who tuned into PBS’ “A Capitol Fourth” broadcast Monday night were treated to an American tradition: bursts of pyrotechnic color unfolding over the nation’s capital on the night of the Fourth of July.

    But some eagle-eyed viewers in the District of Columbia noticed something odd about the broadcast. The fireworks on the screen, bursting against a clear sky, didn’t match those in the cloudy, overcast weather outside. And some of the shots showed the Capitol dome, which is under renovation, without its current scaffolding.

    The show, in its 36th year, boasts it broadcasts Washington’s own fireworks display for millions of viewers across the country from the U.S. Capitol’s West Lawn, where thousands more gather to see the display in person. But because of this year’s cloudy weather, the network confirmed after the broadcast that the “live” show was not live at all.

    Instead, it was “a combination of the best fireworks from this year and previous years... It was the patriotic thing to do,” the show’s Twitter said.

    But it wasn’t enough for some viewers, who questioned why PBS hadn’t told viewers about the augmented showing ahead of time.

    Why do we even need PBS/NPR now? Another waste of taxpayer money.

    Meh. CBS has been dubbing bird chirps and birdsong into its golf coverage for years, it really makes the Masters "come alive'. They were exposed and keep doing it. It's TV. Everything on it is a fraud. Except, maybe, wrestling.
