Al-Reuters has taken the correct step of firing its Arab cameraman after yet another photograph proves to have been doctored. This just underscores what most of in the blogosphere have known for years, that the media has been the target of Arab propaganda and manipulation for a very long while.
Famous pictures of young lads throwing rocks at Israeli soldiers, while a pantheon of photographers sit close by in a huge semi circle, waiting for the best moment to present itself. Its all “blue smoke and mirrors”, as far as Arab manipulation of a “more than willing” international media.
Really, ….all of this coming to light now, though news, is actually old news just being rediscovered. Thanks to the blosphere, its that much more difficult to get away with it. KGS
