When doesn't the media cheat?

Posted By Uncle Jimbo • [July 09, 2008]

I wish the open disdain wire services and drive by media show for their customers was less obvious. But the truth is they just don't care and they will tailor anything to fit their narrative. In this case the Iranians were thumbing their noses at the cowboy Americans and the evil Zionists and for the media this was a momentous occasion. Since the original photo didn't appear to show the Iranian missiles in as much glory as they wanted they used my favorite toy Photoshop to make the Iranian death sticks look better. Even sicker is the fact that they feel the Iranians having longer ranger missiles is a good thing, not another reminder they will not be deterred from their bomb-making. Here is the LGF Photoshop-exposing takedown. Really sad if you care about news and world opinion.
