Reuters backs up on photo caption - Graphic Photo - Accident killed girl, NOT Israelis
Reuters ^ | 8/10/06 | Mohammed Salem/Reuters

Posted on 08/10/2006 7:13:08 PM PDT by GeorgiaDawg32

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.

How many more children must be murdered to satisfy Reuter's agenda?

Reuter's agenda and sheer incompetence comes to light for all to see. Yet these news outlets continue to use them.

How much time passed before they issued this correction? What kind of "accident." Was she smoked by the Hezzies when they started to run low on baby bodies for the cameras?

They wait until photos have been spread all over the "Turd World" and the damage is done. Aftrer that, they can go....oh yeah, we'll get rid of that right now, sorry.

Yeah, they just gave Muzzles another reason to want to kill more Jews. I doubt they will see the retraction. That's pretty inconvenient.

BTW, which photo is it? I get a white screen when I click the link.

because the girl's corpse was brought in at the same time as the bodies of the gunmen.

So this brings up the question of did they show pictures of the gunmen, or did they take a picture of the innocent girl and that's all?

Agenda, what agenda??? Just because Rooters has half a dozen pictures of Israelis firing artillery and their website is saturated with pictures of dead kids, rescue workers, and people crying in front of rubble.

They must've yanked it altogether because I'm not getting anything from the source link, either.

She's the one in the white dress, wrapped in a white shroud on the white table in a white room.

Apparently they killed the photo with extreme prejudice.

I think the Reuters propagandists realize they can post these lies then retract them and still get the Arab Streets effect they wanted ... amplify hatred and blood lust. The Arab Streets ignore the retractions and focus purely on what reinforces their lust.

Because of talk radio (thanks, Rush!) and the Internet, the msm can't play the public like a Stradivarius any more - like they had for decades before.

Yep. They've been doing this crap for decades and getting away with it. It was real easy when they were doing this with blurry black-and-white newspaper pics. With digital pics on computer servers and quick access to information, it ain't working anymore.

that is almost irrelevant and one of things MSM banks on (and has for years) in their never-ending sypathetic propandizing. The same thing was the course of the day during the 80's - they know that as long as they run things the fact they'll have some retraction down the road is meaningless; nobody ever sees or reads them except the people actually paying attention which aren't the targets of their propaganda in the first place.

Little girl killed by accident?

Does anyone know the nature of the "accident"?

Some lunatic Jihadist firing his weapon into the sky to compensate for his lack of balls, penis or the courage to show up on a battlefield with a weapon and fire it at an armed warrior?

Some lunatic Religion of "peace" enforcer kill her for appearing in public without a family male escort or her burka pulled up around her eyes?

Some white slaver with a string of child prostitutes get tired of her running away?

Who knows?
Just asking...

Semper Fi
