Israel at War—Photographers

Just when you think that the propaganda media could not be more biased, more dishonest, and more anti-Israel, they do something that proves you wrong. Yesterday, a major breaking news story was reported first on Israeli news outlets and has now begun to be reported by non-leftist news sources in the West. i24 News reports:

Many of the most shocking images from the October 7 come from the Palestinian terrorists who perpetrated it. And yet, quite a few of the photos published by the world's leading media outlets, including AP, CNN, The New York Times and Reuters, raised troubling questions regarding how the persons whose names appeared in the photo credits found themselves on the scene of the worst antisemitic massacre since the Holocaust. 

These were the questions starkly raised by the Honest Reporting watchdog: "What were they doing there so early on what would ordinarily have been a quiet Saturday morning? Was it coordinated with Hamas? Did the respectable wire services, which published their photos, approve of their presence inside enemy territory, together with the terrorist infiltrators? Did the photojournalists who freelance for other media, like CNN and The New York Times, notify these outlets?"

The report also included a photo showing one of those freelance photographers — Hassan Eslaiah, whose photos from the massacre were used by both AP and CNN — receiving a smooch on the cheek from Hamas leader and October 7 mastermind Yahya Sinwar. Reportedly CNN suspended him shortly thereafter.

Looks like the propaganda media is scrambling to cut ties with anyone who was there, The real question is the one noted:  "Did the photojournalists who freelance for other media, like CNN and The New York Times, notify these outlets?"

If they did, you can bet your life that CNN, NYT, AP and Reuters are scrubbing their servers right now.

It's interesting that the propaganda media outlets aren't carrying any news of this. Like I've written throughout the "Israel at War" series, the Left controls 95 percent of all major media outlets, and that means, they control what people know and far more important, what they don't know.
