More Reuters Fauxtography [Caption Correction Issued]
Reuters via Yahoo ^ | 08/10/06 | Reuters

Posted on 08/10/2006 6:18:42 PM PDT by PajamaTruthMafia

ATTENTION EDITORS - CAPTION CORRECTION FOR SJS01 - 05 WHICH WERE TRANSMITTED AT APPROXIMATELY 1725 GMT ON AUGUST 9, 2006. THE CAPTION INCORRECTLY STATES THE CAUSE OF DEATH. CORRECTED VERSIONS IMMEDIATELY FOLLOW THIS ADVISORY. WE ARE SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED. REUTERS. A Palestinian man carries the body of three year-old Raja Abu Shaban, in Gaza August 9, 2006. The three-year-old girl who had been reported killed by an Israeli air strike in Gaza on Wednesday actually died of an accident, Palestinian medical workers said on Thursday. Workers at Gaza's Shifa hospital said on August 10, 2006 that the initial mistake over the cause of death appeared to have arisen because the girl's corpse was brought in at the same time as the bodies of the gunmen.

Unbelievable!
You see a "girl's corpse was brought in at the same time as the bodies of the gunmen" and so therefore the girl was killed by the Israelis?
Without even examining the girl's body or even talking to her relatives that brought her in?
What kind of journalism is that?
The Dan Rather type?

The initial mistake was that in the rush to publish the pictures facts had no bearing. The correction does apoligize for causing any inconvience though:-(

Israelis pause attack; lures young girl outside to her death in fall from swing

(I'm suprised that's not the corrected caption)

The other day I heard a journalist insisting that since there was a funeral going on in Lebanon at about the same time Israel was bombing somewhere in Lebanon, they were justified in saying that Israel was bombing the funeral.<P?This guy said all this with a straight face too.

EDS NOTE GRAPHIC CONTENT ** A Relative carries the body of Rajaa Abu Shaban, 5, into Shifa hospital in Gaza City, Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2006. On Thursday, doctors said that the 5-year-old Palestinian girl initially believed to have been killed by an Israeli military strike Wednesday apparently died after sustaining head injuries during a fall from a swing in the same area shortly before the strike.(AP Photo/Adel Hana)

The original says

"A Relative carries the body of Rajaa Abu Shaban"

The new version "Palestinian man"

Didn't think a relation would do something like that.

I add it may be a relative anyway, and he was bringing the child to the hospital and got caught up in the media gaggle.

Yes.
So why did Al Reuters not at least question the man first,before rushing to spread their misinformation round the world about those "evil, baby killing Israelis"?
Bias? Oh no! No bias here.Move along.

Reuters trying to pull another fast one, using a poor unfortunate body of a young girl. Shame On Reuters! Too bad they don't feel shame.

Wow, I guess you check your humanity at the door...
This is a 5 year old girl who died playing on a set of swings.

5 years old.

It is one thing to criticize Reuters for their playing with the caption. It's quite another to suggest the little girl is a suicide bomber.

I'll bet you could get your own personal fatwa if you fauxtoshopped an actual picture of an Islamderthal and put it on the Web. ;-)
