CNN Arabic has used the below photo for a report on the current events in this part of the world.

As Israellycool reader Dan points out, this photo is from 2009.

Unlike the plethora of other examples I have posted on here the past week, this latest example of dishonesty is not from private palestinian or pro palestinian individuals, but from CNN, a mainstream media news outlet.

The sad thing is, while this lack of journalistic integrity is highly bothersome, it is totally expected.

    And CNN is the most important name in prank calls. Captain Janks, a notorious phone prankster featured on “The Howard Stern Show” purposely targets CNN because they are the sloppiest and easiest American news organization to prank because they just don’t check things out before they put it on the air the way a professional news organization should.
