AT&T/YAHOO has the sad story of photo altering as one of the top 4 lead stories this morning.
Rooters/AP/AFP/ABCNNBCBS and the NY Slimes after this past week know that they are being monitored around to clock re altered fauxphotography, staged fauxphotography and their anti America/Israel BS posing as News.
They know what happened to Blather, Mapes and CBS when their faux story was exposed as lies and forged documents.
Will they change their vile behavior? Probably not. However, now they are fair game across the internet and conservatives sites. The Lebanon Fauxtography has been another major awakening of Americans re the vile reality and state of the MSM.
Last month, Freeper LS was a guest on the Rush Limbaugh show. LS discussed how the battle of Midway was the beginning of the end for the Japanese in WW II.
The battle of Lebanon may have been the Battle of Midway for the MSM. Like the Battle of Midway which took long and tough followup over the years by our Navy, Marines, Soldiers and Airment, the end of the vile MSM will take a few more years and a lot of hard battles.
