Reuters caught faking photos 

Lyin' bastards.

This fake is positively egregious. How stupid do they think we are? How stupid are their photo editors?

UPDATE: News to nobody, but even Reuters managers know that "terrible quality problems" are nothing new at Reuters.

UPDATE: Reuters capitulates.

UPDATE: National Journal recaps the long and sordid history of MSM outlets doctoring war-on-terror-related images - ALWAYS to the detriment of the West. Always.

And EU Journal, who was over this shutterbug's ass like flies on turds since Qana broke, punks the media apologists with their own words:

"In addition to personally speaking with photo editors", she says – who tell the absolute, unvarnished truth - "I also know from 30 years of experience in this business that you can't get competitive journalists to participate in the kind of (staging) experience that is being described." Photographers are experienced in recognizing when someone is trying to stage something for their benefit, she adds.

Wow. Maybe they ought to hire some of them to replace their photo editors.

Israel Cries "Uncle"

Make no mistake about it, that's what they've done by accepting the UN ceasefire proposal. They've telegraphed their willingness to call it off without achieving any of their goals. They won't get their people back, they won't disarm Hezbollah, and they've destroyed their reputation as "the world's most humane army."

Not only that, but Israel is now at the mercy of Lebanon's non-government AND Hezbollah, which will be left calling the shots there. I give credit to Israel for one thing: Unlike the Idiot Liar-in-Chief, at least they know it can only get worse from here so they need to cut their losses.

I posted a comment on this topic over at PressThink but Jay deleted it without warning. Thought you would be interested.

Speaking of Lies: Milblog Spreads A Lie. Won't Retract. Doesn't Care

The so-called milblog, "One Marine's View," run by something calling itself "Capt. B," is spreading the lie that Sen. Hillary Clinton refused to meet with a group of Gold Star Mothers.

The truth is that Clinton wasn't in her office when a couple of them stopped by without an appointment. When they made an appointment they were received warmly. The organization issued a press release asking the wingnuts to quit lying, but Capt B and his nutcase followers like the lie better than they like the truth.

Can anyone be surprised?

I have an idea, WW. Why don't you take it up with Capt. B?

I've never written about that story and am wholly uninvolved in it.
Let me turn that question around: Why not take up your complaint with Reuters?
Remind me, WW, how you know he hasn't?

Jason's a blogger. That means he... wait for it... blogs about stuff he finds interesting. Like this.

You, on the other hand, are commenting on Jason's blog. Specifically, on a post he made - or at least, that's the idea of it. Instead, you post random crap that is at best very tangentially related to Countercolumn. You might as well comment about an Irish folk fiddler caught stealing booze in Philadelphia.
I think it was wrong of the Irish folk fiddler to steal the booze in Philadelphia, unless he had a real bad hangover.
