More Green Helmet Guy propaganda
Richard North responds to an AP puff-piece on Green Helmet Guy with an in-depth analysis of the images from Qana over at EU Referendum. And he's not messing about:
"...we have spoken to sympathetic Members of Parliament on this side of the pond and are exploring the possibility, in the new Parliamentary session, of a Select Committee inquiry on the way the media have been corrupted, using the Qana incident as a case study, but bringing in the other well-documented evidence of media fraud. We ask our cousins across the Atlantic to do likewise, in the hope that we could perhaps mount a parallel Congressional Committe of Inquiry, examining in depth how the process of newsgathering has become corrupted.Some journalists, like Tim Ruttens, have recognised the serious implications for their profession, but they are in the minority. Too many follow the Jeremy Bowen line and regard the blogosphere as "background noise" to be "tuned out". Perhaps a Select Committee inquiry will help clear their sanctimonious ears.
Clearly, if the likes of Associated Press cannot even recognise how corrupt it has become, then there is little hope of internal procedures and inquiries making any improvements. It has come to the stage where external agencies must take a hand."
