TV Fakery in Egypt: Al Jazeera crisis actor caught out on camera pretending to be wounded

21st Century Wire says…

1-Crisis-actors-EgyptLooks like the CNN School of Faux Broadcast Journalism has been running workshops in the Middle East…

Watch this video as a crisis actor pretends to be an injured Egyptian Brotherhood fighter, before being caught out on camera sporting his fake wounds live on Al Jazeera.

Somewhat humorously, the protagonist playing the role of the victim in this particular Al Jazeera news skit entitled, “Egypt in Turmoil”, kept his eyes shut but tried to kick away the arm of the other actor playing the doctor when his shirt was lifted by accident exposing the fact that their scene was staged.

Don’t expect Al Jazeera to ever run this clip again. TV execs in Qatar will have already flushed it down the memory hole because it’s so blatantly bad.  This clip proves what a twisted propaganda outfit this channel truly is. How many times have they done this before? We may never know, but at least you have been warned for future reference. Here it is:

But there’s more…

says: “In this footage, we can clearly see Egyptian supporters of ousted President Morsi faking injuries/deaths and using “crisis actors” to stage an attack. This type of false flag tactic is not unique to Egypt, and similar techniques may have been employed in the United States…”

Notice the signs all done in English. So this was staged for an American and European media audience. It’s difficult to know who staged this one, but one thing is clear: propaganda and counter-propaganda are a reality in our wired up world today.

All we’re missing now is Anderson Cooper on location being chased by angry mobs and a man on a horse in Cairo, and it’s a wrap!

Here’s another very dubious rehearsal scene coming out of Egypt:

  • This is interesting. I wonder if it is a double bluff. There is another video of people blatantly posing doing the rounds. But clearly there are plenty of real injuries in Egypt, so why bother to invent them, unless for the purpose of spreading disinfo that the violence is faked? .

      we been watching this for a while. A while back syrian girl posted a fake beheading video ala cart, Nick Berg style. Of a arabic kid beheading a man. In the middle of the video people are running around screaming the video is cut. There was no beheading and than at the end a studio set with 2 dead bodys laid out in different positions. When called out it was admitted that the film was edited. for you tube?

      oh back to the how and why. This is special media funding provided to the NDAA. SOme of it is funneled back to the uS through same pakistani actors ect. and used to produce funding here. Im nervous to say it but it needs to be said. The funding for media in the middle east is to create the perceived atmosphere of violence and civil unrest in the middle east like with Vietnam and a demanded response of US military presence in the middle east. We already have bases in 120 Plus country ron paul got it right and 16 trillion dollar unmanageable debt. The US government needs to get its act together or risk falling like the ancient empire of Greece.

      A huge, disproportionate number of the wounded are Christians, not Muslims. By faking the violence showing Muslims, they make themselves look like the victims. Truth is, they used cars to drive over a Christian protest, regularly rape non-Muslim women “to teach them a lesson” and because “I can because you’re Christian, a dog.”

      ISLAM ALLOWS LYING. It is called ‘taqqiya.’ Muslims are allowed to lie, cheat, steal in the pursuit of overthrowing non-Sharia governments.

      Why the hell do you post a link to a “Private Video” which one can’t watch?

      • websuspect

        sorry I had to sit it to private. I draw a story of how funding is being diverted to the middle east than laundered back the US to fund acting media acts in the US.

        I was getting my channel attacked.

    cut funding in overseas bases and spend it in the navy. Cut spending and spend it on the navy US government. if you worried about china and russia and you can put ships for 50 years anywhere in the atlantic and pacific ocean at a fraction of the cost and not in the US than put it in the NAVY. CUT FUNDING AND PUT IT IN THE NAVY. plenty of destroyers out there you can convert into missile destroyers…..
