Reuters Photographers' Creed: Do Anything to Get the Shot

Another Reuters photographer got himself into trouble. This time it was Imad Muhammad Intisar Boghnat, who was arrested and thrown in jail for inciting rock throwing.

On Tuesday, a Reuters cameraman was remanded to prison until trial for his part in rock-throwing attacks on security forces in Bil'in, where the separation fence is a constant target of protesters.

The cameraman, Imad Muhammad Intisar Boghnat, was arrested and charged as a result of violent riots in the Arab village of Bil'in, in the Modi'in region, on October 6, 2006. A videotape that the prosecution presented to the judge shows Boghnat encouraging and directing rioters in Bil'in to throw large chunks of rock at Israeli vehicles in such a way as to cause maximum damage. The accused is heard shouting, "Throw, throw!" and later, "Throw towards the little window!"

The director's cut.

Further proof of something, I'm sure.

There was a considerable amount of attention paid to the methods used by unscrupulous journalists during the recent Israel/Hamas war. It has been very clearly shown just how and how much the news is manipulated and spoon fed to the public by those with no ethics but plenty of dedication to propagandizing.

Another episode in the continuing tale of journalistic corruption keeps us aware that this type of thing goes on all the time and should not be forgotten.

I am interested as to why you took the sarcastic stance that you did. Seems out of place for such a straightforward story.

At least Al Rooter Reuters ... (Below threshold)

At least Al Rooter Reuters and the ASSociated (with terrorists) Press can no longer hide whose side they're on.
Since they're getting Americans, Israeli's and our friends killed the democ'rat party will defend them.

Sarcastic stance? I don't get it.

I'm shocked, shocked, that ... (Below threshold)

I'm shocked, shocked, that Reuters has a camerman that sympathizes with the terrorists.

Their record was so pristine before this!

My view of them may never be the same.

And, yes, we need to blame the joooooos.


You cannot honestly blame ... (Below threshold)

You cannot honestly blame the camera man for just taking pictures of idiots can you?

Ray, can you read? Do you read the author's post before commenting.

Apparently not--but you got to reference a website, whatever that's about.

F'n idiots are mobbing this blog.
