I know some other contributors have mentioned this so let me LINK IT. It relates to the shocking images of dead children in Qana that have been flashed around the world's media today.
Those who are pro-Jihadist may think they can count on the MSM, thank goodness we have new media to challenge what they say.
****Please be warned that the link does contain terrible images, but it also raises some terrible possibilities****
In essence, it raises the profoundly disturbing possibility that they have been staged for effect, exploiting the victims in an unwholesome manner. In so doing, they are no longer news photographs - they are propaganda. And, whoever said the camera cannot lie forgot that photographers can and do. Those lies have spread throughout the world by now and will be in this morning's newspapers, accepted as real by the millions who view them.
The profession of photo-journalism thereby is sadly diminished by them, and the trust in those who took them and in those who carried them is misplaced. Truly, we are dealing with loathesome creatures.
And just so my detractors are crystal clear on this matter. The death of ANY child is a terrible thing. However using that death to propagate a political view by staging a photo call of the corpse is profoundly cynical and revolting.
