Our Fort Lauderdale green screen video production studio (servicing Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach County) is covering the “Deflategate” scandal involving New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady. The NFL has decided to fine Brady $1million dollars, suspend him for the first four games of next year’s NFL season and take away two draft picks from the team. Our state of the art HD remote, uplink studio in Fort Lauderdale, welcomed back, Former NFL Supervisior of Officials, Jim Daopoulos who was live on CNN New Day. Jim, along with former Patriot’s receiver Dante Stallworth discussed the NFL’s punishment of Brady with CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
The NFL’s investigation found that Brady had knowledge that team footballs were intentionally deflated below the standard weight range between 12.5 and 13.5 pounds per square inch (PSI). It was discovered that 11 of the 12 balls set aside for the Patriots offense were found to be under inflated during their AFC Playoff Championship victory over the Baltimore Colts 45-7. Brady’s agent, Do Yee and Patriot’s owner, Robert Kraft are both sticking by Brady, defending the quarterback. Although Kraft said he would abide by whatever decision the NFL came to, he released a statement Monday night criticizing the investigation. “Despite our conviction that there was no tampering with footballs, it was our intention to accept any discipline levied by the league,” Kraft said. “Today’s punishment, however, far exceeded any reasonable expectation. It was based completely on circumstantial rather than hard or conclusive evidence. The statement said Brady had the team’s “unconditional support” and that its “belief in him has not wavered.” The team statement also thanked New England Patriot fans for their support during and after the investigation.
Our South Florida green screen video production studio (servicing, Miami, Fort Lauderdale and the Palm Beach tri-county areas) is covering the latest developments in Baltimore. We welcome back, criminal defense attorney, Mark Eiglarsh who was on Fox News’ The Kelly File, discussing the decision of the State’s Attorney, Marilyn Mosby, to charge six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray. Attorneys for the police officers filed a motion calling for the case to be thrown out and have State Attorney Mosby removed from the case. The motion cites alleged bias and conflicts of interests because the prosecutor has personal ties to potential witnesses and that a family attorney for the Gray family is a friend and attorney for Mosby. Furthermore, the motion states that Mosby and her husband, who is a city councilman, stand to benefit financially and politically from the case.
Three of the six officers have been charged with false imprisonment of Freddie Gray, after the prosecutor concluded that Gray’s arrest was illegal. Freddie Gary’s arrested by officers and charged with being in possession of an illegal switchblade. Mr. Gray suffered severe spinal cord injuries after he was arrested and taken into police custody. The prosecutor says Freddie Gray died after he was placed faced down in the police van. He was handcuffed and shackled with leg irons and was not buckled in when placed in the vehicle. Mosby claims the officers ignored Gray’s pleas for medical attention. When paramedics arrived, Gray was in critical condition, suffering cardiac arrest. Mosby deemed the officers lacked probable cause in arresting Gray and that the knife found on his person was legal.
Our Fort Lauderdale green screen production studio recently filmed this commercial for Spirit Airlines. This “State of the Hate Report” is a cartoon type animation video, whereby a puppet anchor interviews Spirit Airline’s CEO, Ben Baldanza. Spirit Airlines asked airline passengers why they hate to fly. The results of this survey are explained in detail in this video. Interestingly, although it was Spirit Airlines who conducted the survey, what they found was the majority of consumer complaints were about other airlines! The video is very entertaining, while at the same time provides specific data that breaks down the categories and percentages of passenger complaints. 20% of the respondents said they hated airline seats and everything associated with them, including their size, shape, or leg room. 16% voiced their frustrations with lost baggage. Another 15% voiced their complaints about airline delays. Baldanza says the number one concern and determining factor among passengers when booking flights is the price. Although Spirit’s “fee structure” irked many respondents, Baldanza says when consumers are aware and have a good understanding of the airline’s business model, they overwhelmingly save money. And that’s the thinking behind Spirit’s “Bare Fare” model of flights.

Despite the prosecution unable to produce the weapon used in the murder, jurors heard testimony from 132 state witnesses. Hernandez was on the brink of a promising NFL career signing a contract worth 40 million dollars. Among those who testified during the trial was New England Patriots Owner Robert Kraft. After the jury rendered its verdict, the judge sentenced Hernandez to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
