This SNAFU is right up there with ABC using edited Kentucky gun range video to depict bombings in Syria. cbs caught using footage

Perhaps CBS didn’t want to send a cameraman into a NY hospital to get sick filming, so they just grabbed some from a Sky News Italy report. That isn’t the bad part, what makes it unacceptable is that CBS News didn’t tell their viewers.
There is a bright side though, at least their CoronaVirus coverage wasn’t produced by Jussie Smollett.
