Click on the link to the original article. The text of that original provides some very good links to the examples and columns this guy cites. I am too lazy to do the coding myself, but they are worth looking at.

This is not at all, of course, to suggest that all bloggers are credible sources

In which case it is exactly like the TV news industry for the past 50 years. The difference is that everybody knows it now.

The triumph of individual liberty (goal of democracy) over totalitarian media (goal of terrorism).

Just one more demonstration of the rampant journalistic fraud that has gone unchallenged for decades.

This low-cost, real-time connection of news with individuals scattered over the world — especially individuals with unique knowledge about aspects of the news that otherwise couldn't have been brought to the fore (let alone quickly) and who develop the story even as they consume it — is a revolution in news reporting and the search for truth.

Good article. Thanks for the post.

Staged photos are far more prevalent than fakes. This is cheap propaganda, but the leftist media know no shame. Here's one of my old favorites. Palestinian youth (I think) contacts the press, arranges a photo-op and waves a flag for a whole gaggle of photographers. Tomorrow there will be sermonettes pretending to be "news" in many newspapers, accompanied by a staged photo in color.

Photos like this one show the manufactured, dishonest nature of media "news." How anyone can look at newspapers and TV news, much less TRUST it, is beyond my imagining.

This is not at all, of course, to suggest that all bloggers are credible sources - the blogosphere is also chockablock with barking mad ravers.

Mmmmm, chocolate block.

When some fakers get caught & their techniques exposed, others will learn how to improve their product.

I thought one of the most obvious examples of FAUXTOGRAPHY was the 'planted' western toys ie: Mickey and Minnie Mouse etc. but it did get me thinking: What toys DO the Islams allow for their children?

I decided to surf the net to find out, one of the sites was onlineislamicstore.com and discovered NO western toys, just religious figures and islamic related material. I searched the site for western toys...nothing.

,I didn't stop there...I searched many sites relating to find only 'religious' toys. This begs the questions, where did they get those western toys and why did they never show toys that islamic children are allowed to play with?

They are rhetorical questions but the next time they show pictures of western toys laying in the rubbish, it makes it even more obvious of the deceit of the 'fauxtographers' and the media, in general.
