Thanks to PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS for the heads up about this image used by the Guardian and CTV. It creates the false impression that there is large public support for the rebels in Syria.
http://www.ctv.ca/CTVNews/World/20120413/syria-diplomacy-UN-team-20120413/Note the following observations1. Whose are the arms that are holding the left flag? Where is their bum and legs? Oops! 2. The two left black heads above the left flag at the front are overlapped by the blue and white shirts of the demonstrators in front of them. The front section of this scene including the flags and black heads is a paste-up.3. The flag at the top of the scene does not have red stars. The green at the top has been slapped on so sloppily that it overlaps some of the protestors. This part of the scene is a pro-government demonstration.4.Even CTV doesn’t really believe it; as shown by its use of the words “purports to show”. Pen from Penny for your Thoughts found another suspicious video. See it in her comment below.
