We’ve written many times about the stringers that news agencies hire as photographers in the Middle East. There are good reasons to think that some of them are terrorist allies, and some have been guilty of fauxtography. Via Michelle Malkin, the story of a Reuters photographer with another career on the side:
Police arrested a Reuters photographer from Qalqilya on suspicion that he possessed stolen goods.
According to suspicions, the man, 34, sells stolen electronic goods in his Qalqilya store, where 50 laptops, 8 digital cameras, 40 video camera and 15 palm pilots were seized. The goods were stolen from Israeli households in the Sharon area.
I guess the question is, at what point it becomes a pattern.
