PATV`s False Impressions

Palestinian Authority Television has repeatedly broadcast video of an Israeli missile boat firing at Gaza juxtaposed with images of seven Palestinians who died on a Gaza beach Friday — giving the impression that Israelis caused the deaths.

Israel has denied responsibility, saying the deaths more than likely resulted from Hamas explosives. The doctored images show the boat firing on a Gaza beach, while audio of sirens is added to suggest ambulances were already on the scene. Palestinian Media Watch says the Israeli naval video was clearly unrelated, having been released to the media and on the Internet at 4 p.m. on Friday, an hour prior to any of the deaths.,2933,199551,00.html
