ESPN Faked Stadium Cheers For Bush Sr

From davefromqueens at Kos:
"It started with right winger Mike Tirico announcing George Bush Sr. to the crowd. Instantaneously you could hear an echo of cheers and not a single boo from the audio. But if you listen carefully to the audio, that audio was not live. ESPN shut off the sound of the Superdome crowd for a few seconds and played this audio of fake cheers. About ten seconds later ESPN had to shut their fake tape off and go to the NFL official on the field for the coin toss. That's when you could hear the REAL crowd noise. The audio on the field was a couple of hundred feet away so ESPN was probably thinking that crowd noise could not be picked up. ESPN was wrong."

Apparently the stadium thundered with boos from the crowd, which is to be expected. I'm going to hunt around for the audios. Jeebus if true I hope ESPN gets humiliated for this.

update on Boogate - a guy at I Have No Life: A Blog, who rather supports the elder Bush, hammers the crowd for boorishness, so he must have heard the booing.
