Al-Jazeera Is Accused Of Pro-Muslim Brotherhood Broadcast Of Fake Street Death

Al-Jazeera, the Qatar-owned news station that just launched in the United States, apparently was caught airing the death of a Muslim Brotherhood-backed protester in the streets of Egypt — but it was faked.

The network covered what its reporters claimed was a shot man with a bloodied shirt dying in the streets earlier this week. The video footage shows an Arab woman screaming and a man in prostrate position, clutching at a red-splashed stain on his shirt, The Washington Free Beacon reported.

FSA Crimes, a nonprofit that tracks alleged war crimes in Syria, subsequently reported that the incident was faked. On its website, the group described the scene: “Covered in blood, his hand rests on what would seem to be the source of that blood, a gunshot wound. Doctors’ surrounding him as he lays there, eyes shut and face frozen. One of the ‘doctors’ then decides to lift the man’s shirt up and to the viewers’ big surprise, there is no wound underneath the shirt.”

Call comcast and direct TV to boycott the channel.

Al Gore sold them the channel. Hillary Clinton praises them. John McCain praises them. See any red flags in any of this? I will not be tuning in to that channel for any reason. I hope someone lists their advertisers so we can boycott them for supporting the same people that took great pleasure in transmitting the threats of terrorists, the beheadings of Americans. Let them go off the air as fast as they got on the air.
