The media treated us to several pictures appearing to show many heads of state leading the million-strong march for freedom of speech in Paris. For example, the picture below.
However, The Independent has revealed some new angles of those photos which show that the heads of state were not at the march at all. They were on a closed street posing for a staged photo opp. See picture below.
This latest revelation has led to a flurry of rebukes from the media. Read the full story here.
So much for our fearless leaders.
I have another question: wasn’t it the media who reported the original pics with headlines about how brave those heads of state were in marching with the people? Who’s really to blame for the misrepresentation?
