Couldn't you have at least hired an actor?

The Old Media in the West is not the only source of blantat, easily rebutted claims. Michael J. Totten reports on how a couple of Lebanese webloggers busted Michael Aoun peddling a badly photoshopped picture of Christian militia targeting Lebanese soldiers. The hilarious part is that the photoshopped in soldier is from another infamous hoax picture and the soldier is actually a member of the Hizb’allah militia.
