Sometimes the political angle determines the angle from which a picture is shot. More often, the description is what is fraudulent. The Palestinian Arabs have become adept at this. As has often been said, once perfected, anti-Israel propaganda can be used elsewhere to malign local groups in other countries who have become hated by the media. Sarah Taylor writes that In September 2021 the New York Times published a dramatic picture that, examined casually, would seem to be showing members of the Border Patrol on horseback whipping poor defenseless Haitians crossing into the USA. The Times was eventually forced to retract the false implications, but not before anger was stirred against those trying to defend our borders against illegal entry. This wasn’t an unintended mistake — the NYT knew the true story before it published its false news. The next two articles examine the event and look at the consequences As Chris Enloe wrote here, “the photographer who snapped the infamous images of the skirmish between Border Patrol and the Haitian migrants had already said, before the Times published its story, that he did not witness the alleged abuse of Haitian migrants.” But that didn’t stop the NYT from printing it. What a brouhaha over a non-event!
