I have seen 2 bizarre examples of hacking on cable TV

One was while watching Maxine Waters on C-Span, a Russian TV channel took over the broadcast with ads for Dacha time share plans.

The other recent broadcast on MSNBC with journalist Richard Engel reporting from Turkey showed Engel's face and neck being visually edited step by step until his face looked bloody and beat up. Then he went back to appearing normal. I've seen digital glitchs but this was not that.

We expect internet hacks but I suspect we are moving into a new arena.

I'd like the BBC to be hacked down into an English BC, a Welsh BC, and a Scottish BC! My poem, from WalkaboutsVerse, "Nationalism Without Conquest"

I got this once on a library PC and a pop-up image of the most explicit porn.

I would suspect the hacking would be at the server for the streamed video. A trojan resident and if very well thought through would only superimpose occasionally. It would be harder to spot & find, because I doubt there is a numerous crew supervising, and probably not monitoring.

If the software is anything like we had at the radio station the programme files are scheduled and if there is an over-lap then the outgoing file is dropped immediately.

I have seen this on BT TV (UK phone provider cum TV channel) even the adverts are clipped, though this may be exacerbated by the crap broadband and the multiple time-delayed streams switching back to the newest one. Either way it reflects their amateurish results throughout. Probably one person per shift supervising 5 channels plus a load of other house-keeping.

It is all down to the money they throw at the task.

Personally I would not watch any Russian channel, a short viewing of "Russia Today" would show how biased it can be. Like Fox news you say? About the same.

If this new software that can edit images of video, the results of this will probably overwhelm Facebook but a timely edited video of a Democratic candidate before election day on broadcast news can have significant impact.
