I don't think it's any mystery why the major media doesn't want to break this. A: Some of them have a lot of personal emotion tied up in this. "Israel is to blame!" for pretty much everything, and showing what dirtbags and liars many of the palestinians are just goes against what they want to push. And B: they've got a lot of personal 'integrity' tied up in this story: if they break it, all the questions on why and why not start hammering them:
Indeed, when this story breaks, one of the great scandals will be the profound negligence and neglect of the MSM, which never asked a hard question, never followed up on the story… indeed, did their best to bury it. (The fellow at WGBH that Fallows sent me to as someone who might be interested in the story, even as he admitted the evidence was convincing, told me he couldn’t do “just this” story, he’d need to do something about Israeli cameramen staging news.) When you read the comments of Clément Weill Raynal on how everyone in the MSM does it and knows it’s done, combined with the responses of France2 higher ups to the three journalists who saw Talal’s tapes, and Enderlin’s to me — it happens all the time — you begin to realize that this kind of staging, editing, and presenting as news is a public secret among the MSM as well.
To put it crudely, the shitstorm that will fall on them will be wonderful to behold. So even those uncomfortable with what they've done and why, will try to prevent it. They'd rather not have to deal with it than do the painful work to clean up their trade.
