The German daily Junge Welt reported that the French public national television channel "France 2" has diffused an image of a protest in Honduras against the June 2009 military coup and portrayed it as young Iranians resisting security forces during the Ashura day protests in Tehran.

This abuse of images was observed by the French website "Arret Sur Images".

Further, while France 2 apologized for this "mistake", Le Parisien, a French daily which also published this image on Monday, tried to blame it on the Associated Press, the originator of the image.

The Associated Press in return defended that they published this image already on June 29 and that it was also printed in Le Figaro and in The Independent in the beginning of July.

I have stated in the past you do not need to control all of the media, just the ones that are the center of it all.

AP and BBC they are the center, of course a few more help but that is the center.

There is vast amounts of evidence to point at the blatant propaganda perpetrated against us.

We need to wake up the masses.

Thanks for posting this.
