"CCTV" is context sensitive and it keeps getting confused.
When referring to video offered up to prove/disprove (or just fuzz up) Asher's claim, that's "closed circuit television", aka a private security camera from a car wash in Emporia.
However, when referring to the people who show up (randomly?) to film, it is indeed a gal affiliated with the China TV station. If that seems to be a WTF, it is worth pointing out from way early in the thread... she's from Poland (a nation which keeps coming up) and probably has a personal connection to Dustin the PR man or Rob.
She did show up somewhere pre-dust up.
I'm not sure anyone ever saw the magic ESPN crew. ESPN is not going to fund a person, much less a 3 person crew, to follow this unknown random guy around. BEST CASE, they met him (or planned to meet him) at some point along the way to record 10 minutes of footage and soundbites.
