According to a new report, “Anderson Cooper and CNN have been caught staging fake news about Syria to justify military intervention. The primary ‘witness’ that the mainstream media is using as a source in Syria has been caught staging fake news segments. Recent video evidence proves that ‘Syria Danny,’ the supposed activist who has been begging for military intervention on CNN, is really just a paid actor and a liar.” Go to the link, read it all and decide for yourself.
To be sure, this is not the first time that pro-Islamist media have been accused and/or busted faking things. In Egypt, for example, where the military was trying to save the nation from the violence and chaos the Muslim Brotherhood tried to engulf them in — including unprecedented persecution of Christians — the media, following Al Jazeera, portrayed the Brotherhood and its supporters as innocent victims being slaughtered by an authoritarian military — without bothering to report on all the atrocities the Brotherhood was committing.
For example, there was Al Jazeera’s now infamous footage of a “zombie” — that is, a Muslim Brotherhood supporter supposedly killed by the Egyptian military who unfortuitously comes back to life, first posted here.
Below is another video indicating how such things are all staged — according to Prophet Muhammad’s dictum, “war is deceit.” Right before the camera starts rolling, Brotherhood supporters, holding pro-Morsi signs (in English, for your benefit) start chanting “down, down with military rule!” before going into various dramatic poses indicating they’re being hit while cameramen take snapshots.
While this video has gotten little attention in the West, in Egypt, it has appeared on major, independent media, cited as authentic.
Watch the video and see how “reality” can easily be manufactured in our so-called “Information Age.”
