Skip to comments.In an Iranian Image, a Missile Too Many (MSM picks up on the case of the missing missile)
Posted on 07/10/2008 8:41:58 AM PDT by tobyhill
As news spread across the world of Irans provocative missile tests, so did an image of four missiles heading skyward in unison. Unfortunately, it appeared to contain one too many missiles, a point that had not emerged before the photo appeared on the front pages of The Los Angeles Times, The Financial Times, The Chicago Tribune and several other newspapers as well as on BBC News, MSNBC, Yahoo! News, NYTimes.com and many other major news Web sites.

Not just ONE too many.
How does the press keep falling for this stuff?
HEE HEE HEE........ “fake but accurate” Photoshopping from the land of the Mullahs. Guess they haven’t learned any lessons from “green helmet guy” and all the nonsense Hizbullah pulled in Lebanon..... or maybe they did learn the lesson, which is that even the most flagrant lying propaganda can be swallowed by much of the western MSM.
The MSM reporters and photographers are dumber than a box of rocks.
Liberals will believe anything, except when a Republican talks.
Maybe they’ve hired Dan Rather as their Minister of Propaganda.
Yeah and no credit to LGF. Go figure.
Actually, the post does give credit to LGF for highlighting a previous incident.
Ah, Na Pali coast !
In all honestly it is my belief that this photo was purposely photo shopped (badly) to cast doubt in the effectiveness of the Iranian missile programs. Now the media and the pundits of Iran can scapegoat the issue with the spin SOME OF THE PHOTOS WHERE FAKE thus casting doubt and keeping any meaningful action at bay because of this doubt.
The Overall objective of all these warnings, test, threats and propaganda have one purpose. The continuation of their nuclear weapons projects. Any talk of Iranian allies disembarking from their relationship with Iran or talk of ending or halting or agree to western demands in regards to their nuclear programs or even saber rattling are also distractions in order to continue their nuclear weapons programs.. They will get the bomb whether we like it or not.
There is only one and I repeat only one way to stop their nuclear weapons program. And that is to pry it out of their dead hands. And dont let anyone tell you otherwise.
BS. You ran with it without question. Not like any good news that the Bush Administration has coming out of Iraq.
You should put the byline of the website you STOLE it from. It should BE the headline. "LGF" or whover "Exposes Iranian missile hoaxed photo"
After all, if FR is going to get SLAMMED for a parody photo of John Kerry with Jane Fonda being taken OUT OF CONTEXT (and omitting the detail that it was posted to a thread with a LEGITIMATE photo of Kerry and Fonda together at a Vietnam war rally), then they OWE it to the news source that SCOOPED them.
n the four-missile version of the image released Wednesday by Sepah News, the media arm of Irans Revolutionary Guard, two major sections (encircled in red) appear to closely replicate other sections (encircled in orange). (Illustration by The New York Times; photo via Agence France-Presse)
Media Schadenfreude and Media Shenanigans PING
They're human. We tend not to examine anything that supports our prejudices very closely, if we bother to examine them at all.
