Skip to comments."Burning Beirut" Photos were Staged! Short Video

And yes, one Reuter photographer was fired, but this has been going on for years in all the news agencies -- especially in Bosnia & Kosovo. In short, they got caught and had to sacrifice someone so one guy got canned.
BUMP for later. Good find...not surprised are we...
Have you been Roto Reuter?
Hopefully at least Fox News will have the courage to run this tape on tv.
I know the rest of the MSM will simply ignore it.
There are 2 areas of concern: 1) Staging of photos and; 2) Doctoring of photos. Links are in chronological order.
ISSUE 1, STAGING OF PHOTOS:
"The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth" (Green Helmet & Co, show up in Tyre)
"Reuters calls the doctor, take 2" (Powerline blog exposes yet another suspect group of photos same damage reported as new 12 days apart)
"Extreme Makeover - Beirut Edition" (Drinking from Home exposed more photos. This time, the same woman is shown losing her home first in Southern Beirut on 7/22 and then in the "suburbs of Beirut" on 8/5)
"Shaking the Dead" (Confederate Yankee shows staged photos of a "rescue worker" grasping a hand protruding from the rubble for both Reuters and AP)
"The Passion of the Toys" (Slublog has a collection of all the posed stuffed animals among the ruble)
"Lights, Camera, Action!" How the ICRC participated in posing for photo at Qana
ISSUE 2, DOCTORING OF PHOTOS
Excellent video! I'm sending it to everybody on my mailing list.
I guess you might say that al-Reuters, the Ass. Press and the New York Times are engaging in "disproportionate" reporting for their Hezbo pals.
That's a really nice summary presentation.
I didn't make the original post. Just made the link clickable for convenience. Bokababe is the originator of the thread.

You are incredibly thorough and on top of this! Great links!
Julia Gorin hits the nail on the head, as usual, on her blog:
Nasrallah: She Certainly Did
Posted by Julia under http://www.RepublicanRiot.com
Theres something most people dont know about Hezbollah boss Nasrallah. In Russian, the word nasrallah means She took a dump. Applied to Hassan Nasrallahs mother, that name is most appropriate. Because clearly, her son was defecated into the world.
Well, maybe the family can change the Arabic name to mean the same thing. That way it would reflect their true essence and heritage the same way names like Baker, Miller, and others do. What is "our offspring are just turds" in Arabic?
Really well put together!
Thanks for the post. How typical of the lamestream media!
I think that at least one of the "photographers" (fakers, really) has an islamic name. Yet another fifth columnist!
I hope and pray that this cease-fire doesn't leave Hizb'Allah in the dominant position in Lebanon, as it was before the war. (Reportedly, the arch-islamoNazi Nasrallah went on TV to say that he won.) Lebanese Christians, especially the "right-wing" Maronites, are the key to peace in the Middle East, and to the existence of both Israel and Holy Land Christians.
