Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

More fauxtography from the MSM

An Israeli airstrike in Gaza can destroy buildings…but not a Koran?


In full view of the MSM photographers, no less!  I’m sure this wasn’t staged in the slightest bit.  I’m also sure that Elvis is still alive and pumping gas at a Quik Stop in Shake Rag, TN.

Another Iraqi slaughter story…that was as fake as the others!

As my friends at The Nose On Your Face satire site would say, “News so fake you’ll swear it came from the Mainstream Media”! Well, it’s that fake. From Gateway Pundit:

Reportedly, on Sunday 11 close family members of Jordanian-based Baathist reporter Dia al-Kawwaz, who runs the online anti-Iraq newspaper Shabeqat Akhbar al-Iraq, were slaughtered in Baghdad. The attack occurred in the Al-Shaab neighborhood shortly after 7 a.m. Shia militia men shot dead two of Kawwaz’s sisters, their husbands and their seven children, aged 5 to 10. They then exploded the house on their way out.

This story was carried by dozens of media outlets around the world.

Even Reporters Without Borders reported the shocking news

About that horrible slaughter…
It didn’t happen!!

It was just a hoaxer that Reporters Without Borders failed to fact check.

** The Iraqi Interior Ministry emphatically said, “Kawwaz is lying.”
** The police in Baghdad have not confirmed the attack.
** Talisman Gate reported that Al-Iraqiyya TV has “categorically dismissed reports over the murder of Dhia al-Kawwaz’s family in Sha’ab City.” (Thanks, BG!)
** The Multi-National Force Iraq wrote me and reported that they had found no evidence to back up the fantastic story:


We continue to check into this, but we have not received any reports of
this incident.

MNF-I Press Desk

** Agence France Press is now reporting that the Iraqi government denies the attacks.
** Now… This morning this latest news reported by the Journalist Freedoms Observatory (based in Baghdad) and Voices of Iraq (Aswat Al-Iraq) News confirmed that the story is bogus…

The BBC has photos of the safe family.
Boo-Hoo! …A faked funeral!

Mr Kawwaz (r) held a public wake for relatives he said had been killed. (BBC)

Reporters Without Borders and the other media outlets got pwned.
How sad.

Sloppiness or bias? You tell me.

MSM: Troops shooting at elderly Iraqi women

What an outrage! If only it were true, that is. Here’s the picture with the AFP caption:

An elderly Iraqi woman shows two bullets which she says hit her house following an early coalition forces raid in the predominantly Shiite Baghdad suburb of Sadr City.

There’s just one problem, and I doubt I have to point it out to most of you. But for the benefit of those of you on the left, I’ll throw you a bone: the bullets in this woman’s hands are unfired.

Those savages that normal Americans call “troops” are now pulling out all the stops in their war against Iraqi civilians in general, and poor elderly women in particular: they are throwing fully intact, unused ammo! The putrid barbarism is way too much to endure, my friends!

Confederate Yankee has some info on the photographer who took this, and wouldn’t you know it, he’s done crap like this before! If one didn’t know any better, one would swear those bullets were given to the lady to gin up some anti-American propaganda that this photographer was all too willing to foment. If one didn’t know any better, of course.

Canuck MSM engages in "fauxtography"

As Moonbattery points out, the “one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter” news agency al-Reuters doesn’t have a monopoly on using doctored photos to advance their left-wing agenda. The CBC in Canuckistan is getting in on the action, too.

The dhimmis at al-Reuters aren’t the only ones who know how to doctor photographs to help them spin what they cavalierly refer to as “the news.” Check out the picture Canada’s CBC used to chastise Environment Minister John Baird for trying to protect his country’s economy from the Kyoto farce (via Small Dead Animals):

Politics Watch reports:

The head of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News faced questioning from Conservative MPs on Parliament Hill Tuesday about what they called a “doctored photo” that appeared in April on CBC’s news website.

The public broadcaster’s news web site carried an altered stock photo of the Toronto skyline that was noticeably darkened and made the smog and atmospheric haze appear much worse than in the original photo.

The altered picture of the skyline accompanied a story about the Kyoto accord and was first noticed by a Canadian conservative blogger.

Tony Burman, editor in chief of CBC News, must have struggled mightily to keep a straight face while insisting that the ham-handedly doctored photo was the result of a “process error” and not indicative of left-wing bias. Anyone naive enough to rely on the MSM for information might just believe him.

Nope…no liberal media bias!
