Well we know NBC has digitized the news and has searchable word for word transcripts.

I hope that is how they did it... I pictured some production assistant shackled to an editing console.

It's really a testimony to Brian William's enunciation. A sound editor's dream!

Even though the videos have been machine STT transcribed, I don't think that there is intelligent machine video editing... yet. My guess is that at the end of the day, editing was a manual task. I wouldn't have the patience for it now, but in my younger days, I would have spend the production time to earn cred and test my chops.
Also, if machines could do this autonomously, I fear we'd be seeing millions of these... Jesse Ventura autotuned to Eleanor Rigby.

I wonder if the video editor got a credit.

Having seen BW on a number of "30 Rock" segments, I'm a little surprised they didn't have him do it himself. But it was enjoyable anyway...

These days? Pff. Their unpaid internship should be enough for them.
