Comments on: Offensive photo? http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2011/03/14/offensive-photo/ Reader reaction to Reuters news Fri, 18 Nov 2011 06:49:03 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: dupisha http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2011/03/14/offensive-photo/comment-page-1/#comment-347381 Wed, 06 Apr 2011 06:09:17 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/?p=18522#comment-347381 The saddest part is that it wasn’t followed up with a full expose of the crimes committed by the Libyan Rebels. As a propagandist website supporting the anti-Gadaffi uprising, Rueters seems unable to report the war crimes committed by rebels, treatment of journalists by rebels or the fact that the rebels don’t have popular support. They trawl through hundreds of subjects until they find one, anonymous anti-Gadaffi voice and report it as a factual representation of public sentiment.

As for humanity – we need to see ourselves at our weakest points, glossing over or covering it up does us no favours.

Imagine yourself in this youth’s position, regardless of opinion.”

Right. One of the reasons why I can imagine is because some thinking people took the time to document it, and some others took a risk in reporting it.
