BBC joins Hezbollah reckless child endangerment activities

In spite of a landslide of criticism on the methods and actions of photo-journalism during the Israeli-Hezbollah conflict, the BBC pushes ahead with a reckless photo. As each of these photos is covered by the blogosphere it is becoming obvious that the photo-editors are so mentally in step with terrorist groups like Hezbollah and Hamas that they simply have no capacity left to detect how much the photos they publish expose them. It is like a pig farmer who cannot detect the awful smell of his farm, while all guests detect it when they are within a few miles of the place.

The BBC posts a photo of a child next to a large bomb that did not explode. According to the BBC story itself:
The shell is huge, bigger than the young boy pushed forward to stand reluctantly next to it while we get our cameras out and record the scene for posterity.
So we see a clear admission by the author that it is a common strategy to pose children in their photos for propoganda purposes. It also shows that this BBC author is both complicit and lacking concern with placing the child in danger next to an unexploded bomb. So in summary the photo is staged, the child is placed in danger, and the fear of the child is ignored in order to get the desired picture. Such irresponsibility. Such gross misjudgment. Welcome to mainstream photo journalism.

    I'll be looking for the charges of racism that should be coming from the American left, directed at this photojournalist. After all, if, as Charlie Rangel claims, it is a racist policy when conservatives cut taxes, then surely it takes a racist to cold-heartedly push an unwilling "brown-skinned" child toward an unexploded bomb in order to get a great picture.

    I will not be looking for any criticism from Rangel. That would require his criticism to be based upon principle instead of political agenda.

    So who do you supposed pushed that obviously expendable boy out there to pose with a bomb? The BBC, or his parents?

    Sick world.
