A Lesson In "The Passion of the Toys"

*UPDATE* A close inspection of the three images shows that they are located at the same place. Notice the broken column in the first and last images. Also, if he is putting the dolls IN the bag, why is the doll's dress neatly placed inthe first, but tattered in the second?

I found this bit at Hotair, and as Allahpundit explains, The Associated Press knew the photos were being staged, however they released letters stating exactly the opposite. Look for yourself.

And remember, this was a story created BY the Associated Press on August 2, just a couple weeks ago.

NEW YORK Three news agencies on Tuesday rejected challenges to the veracity of photographs of bodies taken in the aftermath of an Israeli airstrike in Lebanon, strongly denying that the images were staged.
Photographers from The Associated Press, Reuters and Agence France-Presse all covered rescue operations Sunday in Qana, where at least 28 Lebanese were killed. Many of their photos depicted rescue workers carrying dead children.

And the pictures are legitimate, Yahoo! News photograps. Don't believe me? Look at their web addresses.

The is Yahoo! News' photo database. The Associated Press KNEW the images were staged, and yet, still ran them, and still issued the "no staged photos" report.
