FOX's Wallace Suggests AP & Reuters Photogs Guilty of Collusion with Terrorists

Reported by Marie Therese - January 31, 2005

On FOX News Sunday (1/30/05) during a segment entitled "Stories You Won't See on Other Sunday Shows" host Chris Wallace made incendiary suggestions about two photojournalists: Khalid Mohammed of AP and Ali Jasim of Reuters.

WALLACE: "Photojournalists need skill, courage and sometimes just plain luck to be in the right place at the right time to capture a great picture. But, now, some people are wondering how several photographers in Iraq got these pictures [clip of several stills of a car bombing] all showing a car exploding after the blast. They now suspect the cameramen were either working with the terrorists or alerted to a staged event."

COMMENT

There's that nifty little phrase "some people." We documented its extensive use by FOX News Channel in the documentary OUTFOXED. It is a clever way of expressing "opinion" in a news story.

It will be interesting to see how AP and Reuters respond to this piece of tabloid trash - oh! - I mean, fair, balanced, completely documented and thoroughly vetted piece of hard-hitting investigative journalism!

What else can you expect from a channel that thinks it's perfectly all right for one of their so-called reporters to use a dead woman's body as a prop?

Gimme a break!
