Libya Regime Stages PR Efforts for International Media

The New York Times/IHT has reported on the Qadaffi regime's clumsy efforts to manipulate the international media through lies and staging PR, reminiscent of Hezbollah's media manipulation during its 2006 Hezbollah war with Israel.

Even the Qaddafi government escort could not contain his disbelief at the sloppiness of the fraud: bloodstains his colleagues had left on bedsheets in a damaged hospital room for more than a week as evidence of civilian casualties from Western airstrikes.

“This is not even human blood!�? the escort erupted to group of journalists, making a gesture with his hands like squeezing a tube.

Now, when will the report get around to reporting about Palestinian fabrications and media manipulation?
