Max Blumenthal Does What the MSM Won’t…Actual Investigating


Last year Max Blumenthal (yes, son of Sydney) was the one who knocked down and exposed most of the Israeli governments’ ridiculous propaganda.

This year, the Flotilla hasn’t even set sail yet (and it’s increasingly looking like it may not, unfortunately) and already Israel has two major PR blunders, both of which I already wrote about. One #hasbaraFAIL is the Pinkwashing video– of poor gay Israeli Marc being denied admittance to the Flotilla because he’s gay- total hoax. Then yesterday there was the story about how the IDF all of a sudden realized that there were very dangerous people on board the ships intent on killing the IDF with sulfur bombs. Or something.

Well, Max has been trying to get the IDF to substantiate it’s claims- any of it’s claims and guess what, they won’t. It’s a secret. But it didn’t stop the U.S. and world media from unquestioningly reporting it. But hey, it’s not like the IDF has a history of lying or anything, right? So the media taking the IDF at their word was no big deal. [rolls eyes]
