BBC Admits Taking A Hezbollywood-Staged Picture

I think this is a good thing. Yes, they still took the picture. But they caption it to explain the staging that occurred-- providing that "context" they usually say they want to provide, but usually don't, at least when such "context" hurts their terrorist allies.

he 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.

It's still a good question whether or not pictures like this should be taken at all. If the Hezbollywood set designers are going to create a false scene, should journalists take a picture of the staged scene at all?

But at least it's admitted here, and that's progress.

Someone seems to have shamed them into cleaning up their act.

Thanks to Confederate Yankee.
