How Phony can they get? (Media busted at Crawford!)
Little Green Footballs ^ | 8-28-05 | Charles Johnson

Posted on 08/28/2005 6:22:54 PM PDT by atomic conspiracy

Here’s a touching scene, featuring Cindy Sheehan and the Reverend Al Sharpton, in front of crosses, looking solemn and sad.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Now let’s zoom out and see the media swarming around this manufactured event:

(Hat tip: Bill P.)

UPDATE at 8/28/05 5:36:04 pm:

More pictures of this moving tableau at Getty Images. Co-starring “Army Mom.”

UPDATE at 8/28/05 5:42:51 pm:

Several LGF readers point out the Jewish star at lower right of the second photograph. Somebody tell CODEPINK not to let the Nazis know.

How about when he saw the flag that was falling over at a soldier's gravesite, shook his head, straightened it, stepped back, and saluted. The media loved that.

It's all been one big show. The only thing that has been spontaneous at Camp Cindy is the gas coming out of their butts.

(moveon.org PR person) "Hold the cross a little closer to your face. Now show me some real emotion...show me some tears. More tears, more tears! Bravo! Bravo!"

Geez...what an actress. This has to be at least the 3rd or 4th take with Cindy posing with the crosses.

After about say...hmmm, the first posing, any person of resonable intelligence can see that this has nothing to do with a mother's grief. It's all about Cindy playing up to the media with staged event after staged event.

The MSM would never dare print the second picture.

Sheehan is their coverage gravy train. Exposing the truth would torpedo potential advertisers revenue.

I have seen this photo and several others like it from the so-called coverage of the Palestinian Arab tantrum. Thanks for having it at the ready.

Tonight when I looked at it, when I looked at the photographers in their cool helmets, all I could think is that they are pornographers.

Now I understand that story posted on FR about the photographer who got into a tussle with Cind-bag's bodyguard about being among the crosses. It seems that on some occasions, one can actually take pictures among the crosses, but if one is exposing blatant fraud by the left, it is no longer OK.

We know our role right? Copy the site, the photo and hit send to all MSM and nuMedia sources. Some will report it, some will cover it up, but those that do the latter will at least know they've been busted.
