Hezbollywood PR machine stumbles: Hezbollah Reuters caught with a really bad Photoshop effort... (bonus Londonistan photo)

***Update 8-6-06***

Reuters employee to LGF blogger Charles Johnson: "I look forward to day when you pigs get your throats cut"

Another twist:
Johnson traced the movements of the sender of the threat, and found direct parallels between the internet locations of the sender and Inayat Bunglawala, Media Secretary of the Muslim Council of Britain.

Bunglawala, who contirbuted an editorial to the Guardian website, has attracted negative attention in the past after making anti-Semitic outbursts, and has declared that the British media was "Zionist-controlled."

In the comment section of the Guardian, underneath his own editorial, Bunglawala denied sending the threat, blaming "Zionists" instead.
Michelle has more... here.


A two-fer... Allahpundit covers the Reuters photoshop mess.

Maybe more news coverage will start talking about the seemingly obvious PR spin on Hezbollah's side.

News coverage going to all corners of the globe is effectively being fed by pro-Hezbollah radicals or even Hezbollah themselves.

Sanctuary makes a bold preciction.

Anyway, that's the developing story. What caught my eye though was this image that AP cropped of a pro-Hezbollah rally in the U.K. this week.
