Power Line: The "public secret" of Middle East Journalism

During my whirlwind tour of Israel this past summer I had the great good fortune of meeting Boston University Professor Richard Landes. Professor Landes has doggedly sought the exposure of fraudulent journalism out of the Middle East. He has pursued his quarry both at Second Draft (where he has specialized in Pallywood and the staged Al Dura affair) and at Augean Stables. Pajamas Media has now posted his excellent column summarizing the pervasive evidence of staging in the case of Al Dura and the reaction of France 2, the organ responsible for broadcasting the production.
