NBC "Live" on 9/11, or "Armageddon"- Which Picture Is Real?



Question: So which picture is more real to you- a still from this on line, low resolution flv.  movie file [ from the 1998 "Armageddon" movie]:








Or..... this still from this on line, higher resolution original MPEG archived record of NBC's  original , allegedly live, 9/11 broadcast? :




FACT:  yes, I understand both images are  only at a low resolution 72 d.p.i. image when viewed online, but consider: the original on line NBC file source  was of higher [MPEG]"res" than the original on line source [flv.] of the still from the movie"Armageddon", and so should still be of far better quality than that flv. file when compared side by side, even at 72 d.p.i. - and yet, somehow, it's not. 

P.S. TV network cameras routinely cost 100's of 1000's of $' [as do a movie companies] and are therefor fully capable of shooting high quality footage at all  times- except apparently, on 9/11!
