A French journalist comments on TV journalism and Philippe Karsenty.
“You know, I think this whole affair is dead in the water,” said a senior journalist at France 3 TV, Clement Weill Raynal, who is also a well-known contributor to Jewish media. “Karsenty is so shocked that fake images were used and edited in Gaza, but this happens all the time everywhere on television and no TV journalist in the field or a film editor would be shocked. This has become more about him than anything else.”
Silly Philippe! (How many people were killed in the months following France2's broadcast of the al-Durah clip?)
Richard Landes does a very detailed fisk of an article on the al-Durah affair [length warning].
