The "coincidences" are mounting...

The Jawa Report finds another series of Hezbollywood staged photos here, courtesy of photographer Tyler Hicks and the New York Times... (click on each photo to enlarge)

First of all, here's the picture of the "dead guy"

Dead, right? Not so fast!

but look what I found here (attributed only to a "stringer")...from our old friends at Reuters.

A Lebanese civilian, who survived an Israeli strike on a crowded residential neighbourhood, gestures after being helped by an army soldier in Beirut August 7, 2006. Police said at least five people were killed and 24 wounded after a strike on Beirut's southern suburbs. (LEBANON)

I can't say for sure, but the guy standing up in jeans and a t-shirt looks suspiciously like the "dead man walking" NYT photo montage featured by the Jawa Report, does it not?


From the comments section in the Jawa Report:
Your item "Times' War Photos Artfully Staged, Directed" is wrong. The photo was not staged. The caption, however, was imprecise. When Mr. Hicks (that would be Tyler, not Taylor) sent the photos, he clearly indicated that the man had fallen and was injured. In the print version of the paper, the caption (page A15 --July 27,2006) said, "After an Israeli airstrike destroyed a building in Tyre, Lebanon, yesterday, one man helped another who had fallen and was hurt." Today we published on, a note indicating that the Web caption was imprecise. Here's the link:

You know, there have been so many "staged" and doctored photos, that I don't know what to believe anymore. One thing is for sure, the media has been acting as an unapologetic propaganda arm for the Hezbollah terrrorists.

The MSM, with their obvious pro-terrorist bias, have made their own bed of credibility (or lack thereof).

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice? Three times?

Sorry--the burden is going to have to be on them to regain their credibility.
