Tourist guy and other favorites will be in this ongoing non saga.
Thanks re my tagline. This photo shopping and staging shows that communism is still alive in the MSM.
Good catch! proves without a doubt what is really going on...
All of the left wing MSM Elite Mediots think and behave in the same manner.
Now we catch them in their lies, staged photo ops, and doctored photos posing as news.
The reaction from them can be quick like Rooters pulling all of the photos of the clown we outed.
Why in the world do we have Keywords?
I have been looking at Reuters, AFP, Getty and AP photos from war zones since 9-11, and at their photos from Israel and the disputed territories for longer than that. The photo of the "child's toy or doll in the rubble" is a staple of those "news" organizations, as is the "Muslim (usually) person standing in front of a bombed building/security wall/olive tree/your meme here with hands and eyes raised to the sky." A famous staged version of such a photo was taken along Israel's security wall about a year ago. I always wonder if the photographer plants the toys and stages other photos.
I'll bet they say those trucks contain humanitarian assistance to those in the area.
Great pic!!!......(by chance, do you have a link to it????)
I found the link!!
That "Minnie" is just like the one laying in the rubble above...different photographer though.
For the record, all of these photos are up on Yahoo News right now:
You can find all of these up on Yahoo right now:
Is the one on the left Saddam or Freddie Mercury?
Saddam, but I think he's singing "Fat Bottomed Goats"
I know these pictures are real. I took the one above myself at a bombed out Hizzbolah Day Care Center/Milk Factory.
Yeppers. The one I have, which is I swear looks just like the one in the picture, guards the house from atop the bookcase. hehe
It is odd how clean they are.You would think that with the amount of dust and debris from an explosion the toys would be coated with dust.
You, sir, are made of win. Nice job!
Love your pics--they're awesome. Could you correct the misspelling in 'bus fair' to 'bus fare'? (I'm a former English major :-))
Nope that is locked and I don't have the tools to change it.
You must have missed the missspelling of anti?:)
"Boy that Sharif Karim from Reuters has a real nose for stuffed animals!"
And not a speck of dust on them.
From the Disney store in downtown Beirut to Hezbollah-held land in South Lebanon.
You could probably do a check of his credit card and show that he purchased them a few hours earlier.
You'd think Mama Sheehan would hurry her butt over to the ME to get in on the action.
Remember last year when Hurricane Katrina knocked her right off the front page, and she got miffed about it? She learned her lesson about getting upstaged by events. The best she can do anymore to get attention is to attach herself to the White House grounds or to Crawford, Texas in August when the media is down there with nothing better to do than take pictures of her and her 15 moonbat buddies.
Oh my--how'd I miss that? Loved the bomb magnet, BTW.
This was the fourth picture of the same guy showing kids toys at what looks like different places. How dumb to these folks think we are?
WHO would be stupid enough not to see that these are staged???
A spoof??? Yes I think it MUST be a spoof...these people have NO joy in their lives....if they are Muslim....now the Christians I assume, smile and laugh, but NOT the Muslims.
Dead is so funny with his graphic arts. I have to make sure that no coffee, lemonade or water is in my mouth when I scan his graphic arts like Bomb Magnet Lady.
WHAT the hell is THAT picture of??? That HAS To be a spoof.
I finally found one! A rare photo of bomb site that looks like it is being authentically searched. I suspect it's their house. The boy is carrying some unphotogenic object, red shirt is seems to be rescuing a possibly salvagable refrigerator condensator. Not staged imo.
All freepers would do well to read Musicman's post!!
HAHAHAH!! Wasn't that a DOLL??? Geesh, these wacky Muslims!!
Oh God...I did NOT want to laugh....but I had to!
any statistician will tell you the odds of finding THAT many perfect pictures is incalculable... ie fixed.
Photogs with muzzie names.
What I miss seeing is all the toy guns, toy bombs, toy suicide belts...
What would make me cry would be a ST:TOS Original Bridge Set, with Spin Action Transporter.
I don't know, but if I'm ever stuck near a terrorist...I'm hanging out with the toys.
