“Fuck Fox News,” DNC protesters tell a cub reporter in their midst… It’s a great bit of video from the propaganda network.
Not much of a confrontation, after all.
Even Fox News smelled something fishy about the U.S. Pentagon’s very clearly altered video of the recent chest puffing exercise in the Strait of Hormuz.
But all of the mainstream media (including CNN, depicted above) are letting this slip, as if they’d learned nothing since the U.S.-led Iraq invasion. If they do it again (I suspect the Hormuz bit was a Pentagon trial balloon to check its media play), it will be fair to call the MSM complicit in a deception meant to garner public support for invading Iran.

Despite Cosgriff’s account, which contradicted earlier Pentagon portrayals of the incident as a confrontation, not a single news outlet modified its earlier characterisation of the incident. After the Cosgriff briefing, Associated Press carried a story that said, ” U.S. forces were taking steps toward firing on the Iranians to defend themselves, said the U.S. naval commander in the region. But the boats — believed to be from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s navy — turned and moved away, officials said.”
