How Much Of What We "See" Is Real?

I found this and posted it to CNC, but realized I should probably share it here, as well. This is an eye-opening video of a project which shows us the “behind-the-scenes” view of media photojournalism.

While this particular video highlights the situation in Israel, it will be interesting to see how this project turns out. Are Pakistan and Afghanistan similar? I say similar, because in Israel there is, without a doubt, a REAL conflict, even if many incidents are staged. It began in the book of Genesis in the Bible.

One thing for certain: this video definitely makes you wonder how much of what we “see” in the media is “staged”. I would venture to say a LOT!
