More Staged Photographs

Michelle Malkin has the latest from Lebanon, with lots of links and updates. The New York Times highlights an obvious Pieta-like image that, frankly, couldn’t fool anyone with a normal skepticism quotient. Sure enough, the “body still buried under the rubble” is alive and well. Which could hardly be a surprise to anyone who looks at the picture, other than, apparently, a NYT photo editor.

Maybe we’re dealing here with an extreme level of naivete or credulity, but I doubt that. I think that newspapers like the Times peddle these obviously bogus photos for the same reason that Hezbollah photographers took them.
