Journalistic Malpractice

Khaled Abu Toameh “busts reporters for collaborating with Hamas and staging photographs in Gaza”:http://www.solomonia.com/blog/archive/2008/01/darkness-at-noon-msm-plays-along-with-ha/. This is really getting ridiculous, but it’s also a lot harder to get away with than it used to be.
See if you can figure out why this staged photo of the Palestinian parliament in Gaza is fake before clicking the link. Reuters couldn’t figure it out, and “they published it on January 22, 2008”:http://news.yahoo.com/nphotos/slideshow/photo//080122/ids_photos_india_wl/ra3346369875.jpg/.
