That that this is being brought to light now is rather strange.
The news always does stuff like this all the time for alot of things.
This is very simply marketting.
Take away all doctering of the photos and it's still pretty horrible.
And do you think its done only for one side? I doubt it.
The media doesnt exist to keep us informed, it exists so we can hear our views and opinions 'confirmed', the security of having ''evidence'' supporting our view points.
WE control the media essentially, to a degree at least. Our opinions shape what comes on the news.
IE In canada we have GLOBAL for the canadian rightwing views, and CBC for the left.
Both sides dont want to present evidence, they want viewers, they pick a target group and bring ''evidence'' to support an opinion.
It is NOT bias, its marketting.
And this little fiasco is a result of marketting.
But this website it self, aish it is a website on judaism. It appeals to a certain group to get hits.
Lets face it, if they tend to take a more 'pro-isreal' stance, it kind of is in thier benefit, for look at the subject matter of the website.
Here is my problem with most people who talk about these doctered photos.
They automatically assume that every picture is doctered.
And hold the belief that ''isreal can do no wrong!''
But get rid of all doctering, and you still have some pretty depressing photos.
I couldnt find any lebanese websites, that is i didnt try, if i did try i may come across some crazy ass stuff.
Anyway, here check this out, dont you think this view targets a specific group with specific beliefes?
And this one is just funny, kinda balanced actually. Well, not in the american political spectrum, but its MORE balanced then others.
