Tripoli’s Greeen Square in India: BBC 24 Aug 2011 Hoax Report

Green Square Tripoli. Libyans are seen celebrating the victory of Rebel forces over Ghadaffi in this BBC News Report (see below). Examine the footage: It’s not Green Square and it’s not the King Idris Flag (red, black green) of the Rebels.

It’s the Indian flag (orange, white and green) and the people at the rally are Indians. Perhaps you did not even notice it. And if you did notice, “it was probably a mistake”.

Sloppy journalism at the BBC or outright Lies and Fabrications? Image manipulation seems to be a routine practice of the mainstream media.
