PBS used some stock footage for its fireworks show, and people were not happy

If you were watching Washington's Fourth of July fireworks outside on Monday night and also happened to catch PBS's broadcast of "A Capitol Fourth," you might have noticed something looked ... a little off.

The actual weather in Washington, D.C., was cloudy and misty, making it quite difficult to view the fireworks. But on "A Capitol Fourth," the annual concert and fireworks special that airs live from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol, most of the fireworks (primarily in the second half of the display) looked glorious in a clear sky. Immediately, people started commenting on Twitter.

As soon as the show ended, producers from Capital Concerts owned up to the fact that not all of its footage was from the live fireworks show, tweeting, "We showed a combination of the best fireworks from this year and previous years. It was the patriotic thing to do."

A "Capitol Fourth" spokeswoman confirmed to us that because the weather was so overcast, the producers pulled together a combination "to make the best television show." She added this is the first time the producers have had to take such measures.

Still, some viewers were not happy that PBS wasn't upfront about the pre-recorded nature of the fireworks, and took to Twitter to complain.
