Hezbollah Journalism Reaches New Depths (Pun Intended)

Full Faith and Credit to Andrew Bolt and Australia's Herald Sun:

Hezbollah sinks Australian warship
Posted by Andrew Bolt on Tuesday, August 22, 06 at 08:51 am

http://www.moqavemat.com - an Iran-based website run by the Hezbollah terrorist group - is running this picture (above) of what it claims is the Israeli ship it hit with a missile last month.

Now look at the Royal Australian Navy’s picture below - as published by Defence Industry Daily - of its sinking of the decommissioned Australian destroyer-escort HMAS Torrens off the coast of Western Australia in 1998 . We were told at the time the Torrens was deliberately sunk by a torpedo fired by one of our own submarines, the HMAS Farncomb.

Should we now think that we were in fact attacked by Hezbollah - or is this just the latest proof that Hezbollah will lie and lie again for propaganda gain?

(Thanks to Mutley)

UPDATE. Hezbollah has now removed the image.

And kudos to Yael at Step By Step whose participation in the book meme led me in turn to Nominally Challenged's A Whiff Of The Med who is the first I found to have posted this.

Why is it that the Blogosphere is revealing these propaganda games to the world? Why isn't the MSM doing its job?
Hey, all you graduates of Dartmouth, Harvard and Columbia School of Journalism! You all wanted to be Woodward and Bernstein--here's your chance to do some real journalism instead of sit in your air-conditioned offices and regurgitate whatever some underpaid stringer of dubious reliablity feeds to AP. How 'bout it?! Let's see some real journalism--starting with an in-depth investigative report on how the MSM screwed up and became a dupe of Terrorism Inc.

Or is that just a tad too embarassing...?

I find it deeply disturbing, yet not all that surprising, that the 'news' is being created & reported in such a way that it will shape the way many view particular situations. It reminds me of the old saying, "Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear." The video-streaming showing the rust marks on an ambulance that had 'just had an explosive detonated', only validated my thoughts on question, investigate, and pursue various sources to derive the authenticity of a situation.

There was a very popular bumper sticker in the Sixties and Seventies. It said "Question Authority" and at the time was an indicator of individual distrust of the government.

I think the time has come when we can resurect that bumper sticker and plaster it on the bumpers in New York Times font with NYT over "Question Authority."

Can't believe 'em any more--they're either making it up or being dupes for manipulators.
