Gruesome


Isreal does not have a chance in the court of public opinion because the Media lie. The following information is gruesome but must be told.



Most of you have probably heard about the Reuters free lance photographer doctoring photos of the war between Israel and Lebanon. If not, go here for more details:

This is not new news...they just got caught this time by, what do you know, Bloggers! Bloggers who are quite proficient with photo software picked it right out. On the above LGF site, they show the original picture overlaid with the faked one.

It has also been unearthed that pictures of dead children are being staged. This is so gruesome I hate to even discuss it. These people have no shame. You can go here and here for the full story:

From the international photographer's forum Lightstalkers.org, photojournalist Bryan Denton, in a message from Beirut Lebanon, describes the most vile sort of photo staging imaginable:

"...one case where a group of wire photogs were choreographing the unearthing of bodies, directing emergency workers here and there, asking them to position bodies just so, even remove bodies that have already been put in graves so that they can photograph them in peoples arms..."

For the full e-mail from Mr. Denton, who is in Beirut, go here:

Last month, I posted a story about Pierre Rehov who noticed some news reels about the IDF shooting a young Arab boy. He knew something was wrong with the angles of the video shoot and decided to investigate. What he found is lots of staged propaganda. Reporters and photographers who go into these areas controlled by the terrorists are fellow travelers or too scared to report the truth. http://www.pierrerehov.com/about.htm

Much of what we see in the media is staged for propaganda purposes.

As we all know, it works, too.
