Some bits of wood fliying around, yawn.
Big news.

Yup. Bits of what appear to be 8x8's. That wouldn't hurt a bit...

I looked and can't see where that wood came from... photoshopped?

Cribbing from the vessel that was being launched.

I sure hope that was a remotely-operated camera...

If the camera was on a tripod, you wouldn't expect to see ant camera movement, but there is .
Looks like it may have been hand held.

My bet is the next frame is either concrete or sky. And there was some major awww s***'s flying around.

Or the video stops for a reason. Most cameras are not designed to be hit with flying 8x8s and water.
I would think that it is now an ex-camera, it has passed on, it's demised, it is no more, it has ceased to be, it has expired and gone to meet its maker, it is a late camera....

Looks fake.
Watch it on Youtube and click through it frame by frame.
It is physically "very unlikely" the cribbing would get out ahead of the water that would be propelling it (or the water that would be propelled along with it from air trapped under the ship). Just no way highschool Newtonian physics would explain that.
It also looks like it is on a steel launch cradle, not cribbing.
Also interesting there is no name or hail port on the stern of the ship.
Watch other side launch videos that clearly have wood cribbing and none of it goes airborne; it just goes under and then floats to the surface.

Cribbing from the vessel that was being launched.

I looked at that and it didn't break up in any explosive way... the splinters just appeared against a white background and are all the (about) same size and no fines or large pieces... suspicious. additionally, the 'viewer' is dead center in the dispersion arc... too much coincidence

I can't believe anyone thinks this is real, but it could just be my ignorance. Exactly why would that wood be explosively airborn? And how was the launch supposed to work.

It also is impossible to see where the rails go down - rather like it was photo-shopped as a drop-off.

Of course it is suspicious. You can't take anything you see on the internet (or Fox News) at face value.

I'm thinking that's a Wisconsin launch, up in Marinette and it's a NOAA vessel. Have no idea if the wave of debris is real, usually the water is going the other way.

Good shift in the thread from photoshop to NOAA ship launch.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NOAAS_Reuben_Lasker


Marinette Marine Corporation was awarded a $73.6 million contract to build a new fishery research vessel for the NOAA in April 2010.[2] A keel laying ceremony was held at the Marinette Marine Corporation shipyard in Marinette, Wisconsin, on June 21, 2011, and the ship was sponsored by Pamela Lasker, daughter of the ship's namesake. Reuben Lasker is being funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.[1] By February 2012, Reuben Lasker was 60% complete.[2]

Here's another view:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYmy3mhOzRU Things is never quite so dramatic here at the shipyard.
