Take a look at this picture, ostensibly taken by a photojournalist that just happened to be in the right place at the right time:
Then check out this analysis:
The bottom line: there are two troubling aspects of this. One, why are all of those reporters there at the exact right time and place? Two, what exactly is this? Whatever it is, clearly it is not a regular car bomb. It may be a made-for-TV fire-bomb, or it may be a vehicle that caught on fire as a result of shots fired by police, and in the latter case it may or may not have been carrying additional flammables; or it may be a few other things. In any case this is not what it is represented as in the captions, namely a car-bomb attack on the nearby school used as a polling center. All of the possible explanations for what you see require bogosity, the only question is what particular kind.
This recalls the photos of the three election workers being murdered in the street. On has to wonder not so much who these photographers are working for, but why the media - led by Reuters, which is certainly not alone - insists on marketing questionable (to be charitable) or out-and-out fraudulent (to be more realistic) photographs. One would think that Memogate would cause them to be more cautious. Instead, those who wish for Iraq to become the new Vietnam continue to throw up stories and photos of questionable provenance.
This has to be why there is growing opposition to the effort in Iraq. Most people, if they think about Iraq at all, think only what is peddled to them by the MSM. Thankfully, there are people around the Internet like this who can go deeper than just a guy on his couch (with or without pajamas) watching the nightly news or picking through a newspaper.
