Reuters’ ran a story quoting Lebanan’s Prime Minister regarding an Israeli airstrike that allegedly killed 40 people. When CNN dug deeper, they found that only one (yes 1!) person had been killed.
BEIRUT, Lebanon (CNN) — Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said Monday that one person was killed in an Israeli airstrike on the southern village of Houla, not 40 as he had earlier reported.
“The massacre in Houla, it turned out that there was one person killed,” Reuters quoted Siniora as saying. “They thought that the whole building smashed on the heads of about 40 people … thank God they have been saved.”
Siniora had earlier told Arab foreign ministers in Beirut that the attack “was a horrific massacre … in which more than 40 martyrs were victims of deliberate bombing.”
Does anyone else get the feeling that the opinions of the general populus the globe is being scammed by the major media outlets?
