World  (tags: Hamas, CNN in cahoots caught lying, Hamas corruption, war )

- 2129 days ago -
Someone within the CNN organization knows the Arabs on the ground in Gaza, and approved the video footage without verifying something that the blogosphere had outed over 36 hrs before as a fraud, yet CNN ran with the footage. CNN

CNN are known liers, I don't trust them since Saddam's time.

Sorry I didn't get here before you, Bob, to welcome you to the thread.

Shame on CNN, and people believe their garbage about the Middle East. I'm sure the Palestinians are very happy to have CNN on their side.

Being outed on being corrupt and lying would probably be at least embarrassing to CNN, but some are so corrupt they don't seem to care. Someone should shoot (a camera) at a CNN official and see how fast he is to dissemble. They're pretty good at it.

Thanks for exposing the biased media, Beth. I wonder how much they get for telling lies.

There's a similar story from Cam on C2:

Thanks, Stan. (and Jason and Bob). The other story was targeted by C2 pro-Pallies, who couldn't handle that the truth was getting out, so they stuck another story in its stead with at least 20 less votes than this first Palies-caught-lying story (and so what else is new?).

We quit watching CNN and its endless advertisements a long time ago. We only watch EuroNews which is much more fair and balanced.

I often wonder what would happen if Israel adopted the violent tactics that muslims love to use against those they think have offended them ?

They would wail "Cry babies" and go to NGOs and Human Right Courts, hoping to find there sympathetic morons, not knowing Islamists' tactics.

Unfortunately, not many people realize what Diplomatic War means, and take campaigns initiated by thousands of web sites at the same time and on the same topic random and sincere.

Hasn't CNN made a statement casting doubt on the veracity of this piece?

Noted, tweeted, tweeted, shared. Propaganda is propaganda no matter who does it. CNN will destroy its reputation even more if it doesn't check its sources. The basis of freedom is accurate knowledge; it angers me when a news source lies. I expect it always from FOX. Thus, I don't consider FOX newIs; I consider it entertainment for the mentally challenged. I still consider CNN as news, but if this continues, I won't. Bottom line; this has been going on too long. Too many Jewish and Palestinian children have died. The adults should care enough to compromise and stop it.

Thanks, Nancy and Pam,

Since posting this piece, I did hear that CNN did cast doubt on the veracity of the article -- ONLY because paeans like us get out the word and challenge them on it. We all need to hold them responsible!

According to a site I just visited, while CNN is claiming it doesn't know how they picked up the story, the BBC has refused to retract/recant, which is just about what you'd expect from them on a regular basis.

What has happened to the CABLE NEWS NETWORK that was founded by Ted Turner? I am sure Mr. Turner finds such actions such actions both sad and not meeting the high standards he established as a QUALIFIED WORLDWIDE NEWS ORGANIZATION!!!!!!

Beth, thank you for sharing! I haven't heard this, so now you've informed me. I hate CNN as it is, so I'm not surprised their lies have hit a "newer" low. I don't believe MSM. CNN might as well put a slogan out "CNN. Dedicated to Obama, the liberal agenda, and the Muslim brotherhood."

Hey, Jason,

The blood flows. On top of everything else, the Israelis are better doctors and healers. Didn't really surprise you, did it.

As a matter of fact, I heard on NPR that injured Palestinians were coming into Israel for medical treatment. That's quite a statement.

Hamas brought a child killed by their own rocket and presented him as a victim of Israel. For some guys, anything goes...

Islam doesn't have a foot to stand on, so it relies on its doctrine of permitted lying. There are 4 forms of lying permitted in Islam. Based on Sura 3:28, taquiyya or lying is permitted until the every end (day of resurrection). Islam allow Muslims to deceive others into thinking they are victims. Imagine a rapist running from a woman he just raped, and having the police arrest her because she scratched him - and not listening to her story but his alone. That is how the West reacts to Islam - the raper of children, women, boys, men and justice.

People can't being themselves to accept that Islam is evil, that over 2 billion people have been and are misled over the past 1400 years by Muhammad. So it is easier to blame Israel and even our own US foreign policy for Islam attacking than to put the blame where it belong - on Islam. This must end. The West must speak out against Islam. Then and only then can the fighting begin to end, with the fighting caused by Israel. It is insane that Israel's actions of defending herself is criticized, but the bully's (Islam's) actions are praised as justified!

Imram. Your post about taquiyya was very illuminating. I can't think of another faith which not only allows its adherents to lie but actually encourages it.

Our World is getting smaller...we need to learn to get along with each other. Life is fragile and so precious. We need to learn to be kind to one another and reach out to help solve problems rather than create more strife and suffering. Too many Israeli and Palestinian children have died already.
I pray for Peacemakers.

As Nancy said, lying is lying no matter who does it, and no doubt it goes on all the time...
But once it is found out it needs to be exposed for all to see!
There is more than enough blame to go around, so instead of pointing fingers we need to be clasping together hands in a call for peace.

"I often wonder what would happen if Israel adopted the violent tactics that muslims love to use against those they think have offended them ?"

I don't believe the Israelites would strap bombs to themselves or their children. I do believe Hamas will. And does. As, I saw elsewhere, Golda Maier said, the violence will stop when the Arabs love their children more than they hate us. I wish that were true the world over. What sane parents don't love their children more than their children's deaths? They could stop all this tomorrow, if they just would. But they've been killing each other there for 3500 years, old habits are the hardest to break.

When CNN can be bought off in order to not make news look as bad as it really is that speaks volumes about their credibility!! The sad part is everyone who watches them that do not keep up with the daily BS in the news and end up believing them as a trustworthy source of news! SAD!!!:-(
