PALLYWOOD ‘Fauxtography’ promoted by the BBC, too

BBC Reporter posts photo of what he calls “Pain in Gaza” of a young girl on  a stretcher. Problem is, the photo a Syrian girl injured in that conflict, not Gaza. ..which is a photo from June taken in Lebanon.

Heartbreaking RT@ihazemi Pain in…

The link takes you to this photo:

A 6-year-old Syrian girl, lies on a stretcher as she looks at her sister Marwa at a hospital in Tripoli, northern Lebanon, June 14, 2012. According to their mother, Shams and Marwa were wounded two days ago when a shell hit their house during fighting between Syrian troops and anti-government forces in the Syrian town of Qusair.

Donnison has since apologized, but accuracy is still not on his agenda.

A photo I retweeted from another journo yesterday showing children injured was NOT in Gaza as I said but apparently from Syria. Apologies.

Besides Tan Jacket Man and Reflective Jacket Man, there are more incidences of Hamas and its supporters using fake photos to gain the upper hand in the information war.

Here are the latest examples.

Exhibit 1: Photo of a Syrian child killed, reposted by Hamas on Twitter  (since removed)

Exhibit 2: Photo of another Syrian child posted by Gazan Facebook user here.

  1. I like what mike huckabee said “israel is alike a patient parent putting up with a child’s naughtiness (Gaza) and now must put the child in their place.”
    of course it is a bit paraphrased but that was the intent

  2. I hadn’t noticed the ‘reflective’ man in the first T.V. reports.

    Also at 2:37 – in original T.V. reports, all we saw were the people from the waist up. Now we see waist down also. They’re not women. They’re men.

  3. I was at the bank this morning..and they had CNN on their TV. Everything was “bad” Israel…and poor pitiful pali-pukes. Showing pali-pukes (as the reporter said) with their faces filled with grief, shock and anger! NOT once did the reporter say anything about them shooting off 56 rockets at Israel ..and into civilian areas!

    This is the same LSM that makes obama look like a prince. The Prince of Fools!

  4. I am so sorry to see so many children hurt, But the war monger palastians should not be storing and firing their darn rockets in civilian populated areas. They do it so they can get pity from all the people who are too ignorant to see it for what it is. These inbreeds are idiots!

  5. Same BBC that now has sex scandals and pedophilia rings coming out of its
    ears. What a bunch of filth just like America Gutter Rat media.
