17. XRAY VISION

DOES VINE HAVE X-RAY VISION?

  • 31:03 (Tongo): Dewani called me in a agitated state to find out where I was.
  • 31:24 (Vine): This is CCTV of that call. Shrien Dewani is holding his phone to his left ear – Anni’s side. He shows no sign of agitation, and according to Tongo, he insists on Anni’s murder when she’s sat right beside him.

Jeremy Vine claims to be able to tell, from grainy CCTV footage of the back of Shrien’s head, partially obscured by the furniture and table lamp, that Shrien “shows no sign of agitation”.

Vine’s credibility here is absolute zero.

When a person speaks on the phone, they express agitation in their voice such as in the tone and choice of words. They don’t necessarily physically jump up and down, waving their hands around, cartoon style.

Does Vine really think Shrien Dewani would have visually behaved liked this in the bar of a  5 star hotel?

Vine is unable to show Dewani’s facial expression or lip movements of “that call”.   Vine does not have any audio recording of this call.  So how can he possibly claim there was “no sign of agitation”? Vine’s willingness to ‘read’ this CCTV footage as evidence of Shrien Dewani’s supposed emotional state, shows that he does not have the ‘neutral point of view’ required of a disinterested and impartial reporter.
