Reuters Pulls Beirut Air Strike Doctored Photos!

Published by at 9:37 am under All General Discussions,Hezbollah

My is off to EF Referendum, Little Green Footballs and all the other bloggers who noted all the inconsistencies in the photos and stories eminating from the Qana incident last week. While that story is still under doubt, Reuters is announcing the pull back of photos of an air strike in Beirut, which had been doctored, as they investigate the matter. The photographer in question on the Beirut photos also shot photos at Qana. It is truly amazing the power the blogosphere has to bring to bear an enormous intelltectual power to dissect and assess information being fed to the world. This is going to be something to watch.

Major Update: Rusty at My Pet Jawa gets into the game with a series of questionable photographs from the same questionable photographer.

    It is our turn at the Cedar Revolution.

    Just to snark the lefties off, we are speaking truth to power.

    For most of the MSM, they are treating it as oxygen is a terrible thing to waste.

    They got a little too sloppy.

  3. Smoke Signals Photo Removed by Reuters…

    We’re sorry for the inconvenience? That’s not an inconvenience. It’s actively engaging in propaganda for terrorists. How is Reuters able to get an uncorrected version of this photo? Is the original coming from the photographer or someone within Reut…

    Reuters FIRES Phony Photographer. Fhony Foto Fiasco raises new questions about Qana and Haditiha “news” reports of “massacres.” Is this another Jenin “masscre?”…

    This is yet another example of the lazy media and a lack of any real journalism anymore. They are perfectly willing to be spoon-fed the information they publish. They don’t have their own people who have a track record and have some integrity, they rely on locals because it’s “easier” (and probably saves a boatload in employee insurance premiums, not to mention hazard pay). So they do it on the cheap and easy and this is what you get in return. Besides, it fits their agenda so “no harm, no foul” as far as they are concerned.

    AJ: just remember, it’s not the actual faking of the photos, that’s important, but the INTENT of the faking!

    Therefore, it’s “Fake but True”, is all that matters!

    The INTENT is to point out what evil people the Israelis are, for bombing civilians in Lebanon; so to fake photos, to do that, makes it acceptable….to the Leftists, and they’re Islamo-Fascists ALLIES!

    What’s WRONG with you AJ? Don’t you GET IT!?

    Shame on you…..
