« Advancing the Liberal Cause for Israel | Main | Telegraph Caught Recycling Gaza War Photo to Distort Today's Reality »

Fauxtography Waiting to Happen

Baz Ratner of Reuters has some cool photos (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6) from an Israeli Air Force graduation exercise.

I wouldn't be surprised if one of these images (most likely no. 6, and certainly not this other photo) gets used out of context to illustrate an Israeli attack -- with absolutely no mention of where this originated from.

Far-fetched? Nah. Just yesterday, we caught the Daily Telegraph recycling an old photo of suffering Gazans.
