The Camera Can Lie: CNN's Doctored Photos of Rachel Corrie?
Read the news. Then research it. Doubt any photos you see in the media relating to Israel vis a vis its "neighbors" out to destroy it. Check them out on sites such as Honest Reporting and Camera. Then, come to your conclusion as to whether it is the truth, or a lie.Much has been written about how the Rachel Corrie case was handled in the courtroom. Yet all the while, a more subtle judgment has been taking place in the court of public opinion.So while the Israeli court ruled that Corrie’s 2003 death was an accident – given that the bulldozer driver was unable to detect Corrie’s presence – that ruling did not stop CNN from promoting the canard that Corrie was “intentionally murdered.”In describing the verdict, a CNN video report depicted Corrie standing in plain view of an Israeli bulldozer, with a megaphone in hand, as CNN reporter Frederik Pleitgen intoned: “These photos show the moments before she was killed.”If Corrie was indeed standing with a megaphone and fully visible at the moment she was crushed, it is difficult to believe that the Israeli driver failed to see her.The CNN report is a lie.
