The western press very quickly accepted the video as real and used it to support the US administration’s narrative on Syria. Many top US news sources began to spread the story. Even though the producer said he explicitly added big hints that the video was fake, like the children surviving multiple gun shots.
Propagating false stories on Syria, is nothing new for the western press. In the lead up to the conflict many stories were exposed as frauds, such as the Anti-government activist “Gay Girl in Damascus” which turned out to be a middle-aged American man in Scotland. Syrian Danny Abdul Dayem which was frequently interviewed by CNN was using fake gun fire and flames in his interviews.
…These tweets were inline with an official State Department Twitter account @ThinkAgain_DOS which blamed Assad for the fictitious bullets in the film. This casts doubt on how deeply the US administration scrutinizes information it bases it’s policy on.

In a classic honey pot trap a crude photo was sent mysteriously out into the chain to be picked up and passed on in order to DISCREDIT anyone vouching for it.
AP – Associated Propaganda takes point:
“Mark Solonin, a Russian author who is an engineer by training, said in his blog that both aircraft looked disproportionate to the landscape and concluded that their images were crudely edited into a satellite picture.
Others noted that the commercial airliner in the photo appears to be of a different type, a Boeing 767.”
Probably all true. The question is why? Who created an obvious fake photo showing what likely actually happened?
This isn’t the only fake or forgery going around. The audio “confession” of Donetsk commanders, which is up on the NY Times website, is a glaring fraud:
Only that particular fraud tells us a lot more about the actual shoot down operation. It was prepared PRIOR to the downing of MH17. It is a recording concerning the shoot down of a Ukraine SU-25 the day before, July 16th, not the 17th. Therefore this audio PSYOP was prepared and executed knowingly (by Ukraine intelligence working with CIA) in order to specifically blame the rebel commander.
More deception concerns BBC’s censoring of eyewitnesses who saw the Ukraine fighter jet in the same airspace as the destroyed Malaysian airliner.
So, to recap, this latest photo is a fake. It is faked in order to make you look bad if you present it as evidence. It exists to discredit YOU. Tellingly, the Toledo Blade (AP) wouldn’t even show the actual photo, as it looks too much like what actually occurred! They merely comment using bloggers as their sources.
Faked photo, of questionable sourcing – DO NOT USE:
This is a honey trap ploy to discredit Russian media. I suggest you read my piece on disinformation and the 9/11 Truth Movement to get up to speed on how this stuff distorts reality.
Many people jumping over here from Disinformation. Other relevant info to the MH-17 includes the Russian presentation from back in July. Radar data showed the fighter plane:
The Russians tested the nose cannon from the SU-25 to compare damage:

This is not new.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. government agreed to a police request to restrict more than 37 square miles of airspace surrounding Ferguson, Missouri, for 12 days in August for safety, but audio recordings show that local authorities privately acknowledged the purpose was to keep away news helicopters during violent street protests.
Journalists were arrested at many, many protests. Even Amy Goodman was hauled away at the Occupy protests.
During the Boston Marathon siege by 10,000 National Guard and police the media was pushed back out of range of the action.
Back in 2000 I was at the Democratic National Convention protests, video taping at the same corner where LAPD blasted the crowd with shotgun rounds of some sort and rubber bullets. A journalist was shot in the chest with a rubber bullet and nearly died. ACLU later sued the city for millions, and my footage netted me a piece of the settlement for providing evidence.
The press was barred from getting near every flash point where the police state’s actions are in question. It is a way of erasing the Constitution, accountability, justice and morality in a small bit of territory while the police become enforcers of the corporatocracy, rather than law enforcers.
