NBC's crime against humanity
As I have written before, I consider this to be comparable to the crimes of Rwandan radio broadcasts held to constitute incitement to genocide and persecution.
Crime or not, it is despicable and is certainly not journalism.
But given that NBC is owned by a weapons maker that has profited greatly from 9/11, this comes as no surprise.
Thanks to mvb for finding this:
The footage was shown on this station in New York State, before interviews with local Arab-Americans. At the beginning, the talking head states: "Leaders in the local Arab community are cautioning people not to jump to conclusions," followed immediately by this footage of Palestinians dancing. How grotesque and irresponsible to frame the story that way, even if the footage really had showed Palestinians dancing in response to 9/11.
