MSM Lies - A Primer
A forensic analysis by Richard North reveals that two dead kids from the Qana bombing were paraded for an entire day by one individual - presumably a Hezbollah operative - to enable Reuters, AP and AFP to stage pictures.
You can read the expose here - what follows is a deconstruction of the fabricated event sequence.
The pictures all show the same man, a claimed "rescue worker" who I've given the code "A", and the dead bodies of two kids, who I've coded "1" and "2".
Here's the sequence using the times given by the agencies:
|"Rescue Worker"||Dead Kid||Event||Time||Agency|
|A||1||Body pulled from wreckage||2:21 PM||Reuters|
|A||1||Display for photographer||12:25 PM||Reuters|
|A||1||Display for photographer||12:53 PM||AP|
|A||1||Display for photographer||1:01 PM||AP|
|A||1||Display for photographer||4:09 PM||AP|
|A||1||Display for photographer||4:30 PM||Reuters|
|A||2||Carrying to Red Cross worker||untimed||AP|
|A||2||Display for photographer||10:44 P||AP|
|A||2||Display for photographer||untimed||AP|
|A and B||2||Placing body on gurney||7:16 PM||AFP|
|A||2||Placing body in ambulance||10:25 AM||AP|
|None||2||Body in ambulance||7:21 AM||AP|
It's a tragedy these kids died, but parading their bodies for a day to stage these sequences was disgusting.
The dishonesty does not stop with AP, Reuters, and AFP - the UN and Red Cross workers on the site must have been complicit.
I hope that this analysis is used to train student journalists in the dangers of dishonest reporting. But doubt it.
