Reuters once again creatively "adjusts" news photos - this time from the Israeli raid on the Marmara ship - cropping knives, a pool of blood and even an injured Navy seal.

Reuters statement, in part; "The images in question were made available in Istanbul, and following normal editorial practice were prepared for dissemination which included cropping at the edges. When we realized that a dagger was inadvertently cropped from the images, Reuters immediately moved the original set as well.”

Reuters has also barred FNC from using several images from the 2006 Israeli-Lebanese conflict, which were miscaptioned and digitally altered to damage the Israeli side.

Yeah, this is not surprising at all. Especially from a European news organization.

It just further proves that anything people see on the news about Israel, from US and European news organizations, is completely backwards (with the exception of FOX News in the US). There is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza and these "relief workers" who were killed by the Israeli military were not on any mission of peace.

Here is a story that shoots down the lies in the media that Israel is stopping food and medicine from reaching Gaza:

Nate, I suspected that there were no shortages of vital supplies. Or any supplies, for that matter, as the article you linked to shows.

It's disturbing that Hamas are also trafficking in young girls and drugs - and apparently making quite a profit from it.

I'm outraged at what Ron Paul said about the situation there, I thought he had a little more common sense than that.
