The article focuses on the response of the camp of presidential candidate Rudy Guiliani on the attack from the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) in the U.S. Guiliani's team dismissed the campaign as politically motivated. The video depicts the testimony of New York City firefighters about the lack of support of Giuliani. The author claims that the immediate response to the negative campaign is intended to dispel negative thoughts by voters about the campaign.
