Hezbolalah Propagandahah!

Found this conversation being passed on The Corner :

While on the Hezbollah side, it's really interesting — I [CNN's Anderson Cooper] was in Beirut, and they [Hezbolah] took me on this sort of guided tour of the Hezbollah- controlled territories in southern Lebanon that were heavily bombed. They are much cruder, obviously. They don't have the experience in this kind of thing. But they clearly want the story of civilian casualties out. That is their — what they're heavily pushing, to the point where on this tour I was on, they were just making stuff up. They had six ambulances lined up in a row and said, OK, you know, they brought reporters there, they said you can talk to the ambulance drives. And then one by one, they told the ambulances to turn on their sirens and to zoom off, and people taking that picture would be reporting, I guess, the idea that these ambulances were zooming off to treat civilian casualties, when in fact, these ambulances were literally going back and forth down the street just for people to take pictures of them.

Finally it is starting to sound as if some in our MSM are catching on they are being used as dupes by the Hezbolalahs. Of course, we will see if it matters.
