The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

A Pallywood Victory

Ok, this post may not actually be photojournalism related, but its results speak volumes for exposing fraudulent photojournalism like what goes on in Pallywood and specifically, the al-Durah event that lead many Palestinians to riot and attack Israel out of anger.

From Scott at the Power Line blog comes the news:

...the French Court of Appeals has found in favor of Philippe Karsenty, overturning a lower court decision that Karsenty had libeled France 2 and its Jerusalem correspondent Charles Enderlin when he accused them of knowingly broadcasting a false report on the death of Muhammad al-Durah in the Gaza Strip in 2000. Professor Richard Landes has relentlessly sought to expose the al-Dura affair as a hoax.

If you don't know what Pallywood is or have a clue what is meant by the al-Durah affair, then head on over here and watch the movies and see the pics of how a stage is set up like a massive Hollywood backstage.

As Scott points out, you can read the full article summarizing the case's results here.
