On Monday evening, CNN’s Don Lemon aired an unauthenticated recording said to have captured gunshots near and at the time of unarmed Michael Brown’s shooting death by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Mo. The recording was brought to CNN by Lopa Blumenthal, the attorney of an unidentified man who said he recorded the audio.
On Thursday, the video texting service Glide posted a note to it’s homepage under the headline “In the Moment: Glide Verifies Ferguson Shooting Recording.” A portion of it read:
“Because Glide is the only messaging application using streaming video technology, each message is simultaneously recorded and transmitted, so the exact time can be verified to the second. In this case, the video in question was created at 12:02:14 PM CDT on Saturday, August 9th.”
WaPo’s Erik Wemple Blog today shared a conversation with Glide’s head of communications, Chaim Haas, who said, “The question we are being asked is is this authentic and the answer is absolutely.”
