And now for some Breaking News from the failure to fact-check department:
Seattle Blogger Richard Silverstein fancies himself a journalist, yet he seems to have missed some of the very basics of fact-checking.
Today, Silverstein posted an image on his facebook page as "Breaking news"- claiming 9 year old children- 50 of them- were arrested in Hebron. Its illustrated with an anguished photo of a young girl- trouble is, as 2 minutes on Google would have shown him- the photo was taken in 2007 . Silverstein, in his mad rush to demonize Israel, just couldn't be bothered to check for details...like accuracy. Or relevance. Or timeliness.
Apparently sloppy research is a hallmark of Silverstein, the self-proclaimed "Wikileaks of Israel". He's done this before.
