I disagree. While I DID point out that they said it cannot be confirmed, blah blah, like they did with some of the most inflammatory Libya propaganda
as well, just the fact that this is even hitting the media makes it a hoax. While it may not be "right" that this is the case, it is a simple FACT
that most watchers will NOT pick up on the significance of all their disclaimers, and most watchers will ASSUME that because it is being spread by the
media it is the truth.
Like it or not, (and I dont like it) people in general do not use critical judgment with what is shown on TV, particularly on "news" type channels
and shows. They accept that what they are seeing must have been fact checked and is the truth. Thats the power of propaganda. When virtually any
claim shown through some "official" or "legitimate" channel is accepted as gospel by the masses, showing video of things like this IS a hoax.
Because disclaimers or no, the masses by and large will accept it as true.
