You have to check out this. It’s a blog which contains some great links with information about Green Helmet Guy. Have you heard of him? He is this guy who keeps showing up in the media photos of war-torn Lebanon. He’s also been filmed directing photograhers and videographers and setting up photo shoots, so to speak, of dead children. It’s very disturbing.
It’s also a clear indication of the media manipulating the news — or, at the very least, allowing groups like Hezbollah to manipulate the news.
Reuters has admitted that some of its employees have photoshopped pictures. With the ease of using Photoshop, you have to wonder how often this happens. How many of the pictures we see have been altered? Or, if not altered, flat-out staged?
Dan Riehl dissects a video and explains how it appears Lebanese “rescue workers” (or members of Hezbelloh) move bodies of dead children from one location to another to make for more dramatic photographs and to increase the numbers of dead civilians.
The media is not only manipulating the news. They are manipulating your emotions, manipulating your understanding of the truth.
