Every blob on camera is a ghost

Did a Reporter Capture a Ghost on Camera in Haunted House? | Trending Now – Yahoo! News.

Even those who may not believe that paranormal activity is real may find it difficult not to glimpse something mysterious in a video that is beginning to go viral. Vanessa Bolano, a reporter for WGNO in New Orleans, did a story about the Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana. While inside the home on the plantation, Bolano does a traditional news standup, and she wraps up and heads back to the TV station to edit her piece.

The home that is situated on the Myrtles has been called one of the most haunted houses in America, and once Bolano looked through her footage, she discovered something eerie in one of the shots.

A “meh” moment as usual. It’s odd that every single glitch or out of focus blob has automoatically become “a ghost” or “spirit” or something supernatural. It’s more likely to be perfectly natural – a piece of fluff or out of focus insect.

This is also a priming situation. She was LOOKING for something unusual. I bet if she looked at other films in old houses, she’d find odd things too.

This piece is trending on Yahoo news so… yeah. Doubtful.

    How silly is this? Don’t folks need some sort of degree in journalism to get on the tube?
    Wait a minute… now I’m just being silly myself.

    If this video was taken outside I am sure the blob would be interpreted as a UFO just like in Denver (i.e., “Not even our military has anything that can move at that speed.”). Shouldn’t the reporter at least attempt to investigate the possibility that her “ghost” might be something else more logical? The reporter’s investigative standards don’t even match up to those of Scooby Doo.

    I’d be will to bet that it is just light being reflected off a flying insect.
