There are nearly 800 television stations associated with the big networks (NBC, ABC, FOX, CBS), and about half of them show their own local news program every night. That's 400+ hours per day of newly generated content, and if you don't see a bunch of flubs in 400 hours of content, you're not looking hard enough.
Magnetic fields are very well understood in terms of their field strength and direction (vector) at any given location. The dose given to the test subject of the video was huge, and very, very local. Notice how it had to be placed right against the head to cause an effect, and that the operator's head was only a foot or so away and remained unaffected. In order to generate such a large field right at someone's head without touching them, you're not only talking about a huge coil with enough power to light several houses, you're also talking about a big enough magnetic field that it couldn't be "aimed" and only affect that one person - the electronic equipment in the field (such as cameras) would also be affected, as would the camera operator and anyone else nearby. If you want to generate such a large field in such a small spot, you need to go to a particle accelerator and look at how they do it. It's not easy to focus focus magnetic fields in that way.
The claim that is being made not only fails to pass simple litmus tests as the above, but also fails to be convincing in terms of specificity or logical reason. I honestly don't think such a claim which has little basis in reputable evidence requires much consideration.
