One For the Camera

It's bad enough when photo journalists stage photo opportunities, but now the BBC has taken matters to a new twisted level--endangering kids for the sake of a photo.


Reporter Martin Asser explains:

When Um Ali Mihdi returned to her home in the southern Lebanese city of Bint Jbeil two days ago, she found a 1,000lb (450kg) Israeli bomb lying unexploded in her living room.

The shell is huge, bigger than the young boy pushed forward to stand reluctantly next to it while we get our cameras out and record the scene for posterity.

This is the worst ethics in journalism I have seen to date. What is amazing is that BBC editors have become so blatant, they see nothing wrong with it. I kept looking at the page to see if it was some kind of fake web site. But it is not. It is actually a BBC site.
