Pallywood

From Brain Terminal comes:

Pallywood is a short documentary, available online, that shows how freelance Palestinian cameramen are funneling staged "war footage" through major media outlets into homes throughout the world. Naturally, these staged shots are engineered for the highest emotional propaganda value, intended to get the viewer to sympathize with the Palestinian cause.

SecondDraft.org exposes how broadcast media are duped--perhaps unwittingly, perhaps not--into becoming unpaid assistants of the Palestinian media effort.
