Actual Footage of the Reuters Cameraman Being Shelled

Let's see Israel spin this one.

Human Rights Watch claims to have evidence that the cameraman was targeted directly. So I went to HRW and found a link to the actual footage which appears on Rueter's own site.

The Palestinian cameraman was wearing a jacket with PRESS clearly written on it, and was driving in a jeep also clearly marked. The Israelis inside the tank had the means of viewing the cameraman, and still the Israelis fired the shell which killed the cameraman and 2 others, all aged 23 or younger.

Clear footage of Israel targeting civilians and not combatants.

Clear footage of yet another Israeli war crime.

All true...but how do you get this revealaing footage onto the CNN evening news?

Good question !

You would have to get Wolf Blitzer, former AIPAC employee, to somehow show this in his Situation Room, but I doubt that would ever happen since the episode reflects so poorly on the Israelis and paints a different picture of Israelis than our media outlets desire.

CNN would much rather show pundits criticizing Carter or link to some of our more biased members of Congress calling for his passport to be taken by Condy Rice. I read that today on Finkelstein's site, by the way.

I guess the best thing to do is keep blogging on the subject until Americans finally realize that our mainstream media in the US is not as interested in journalism as it is in indoctrination. Then hopefully, if enough people blog on it, critical mass will be reached until a balanced foreign policy can be achieved.

I hope I live long enough to see this overdue transformation.
