Fox News Being Accused To Assist ISIS, Embeds Jordanian Pilot Death Video on Website

16

Fox news is now the only American media organisation to embed the video of ISIS burning a captured Jordanian pilot to death on its website. The video is extremely graphic but in pursuit of the truth, it is often necessary to view graphic material. When FOX news does it though, it’s most likely just for the shock value and part of their war against their enemy’s agenda.

The video shows the death of Muadh al-Kasasbeh, the captured Jordanian pilot mentioned earlier.

In a statement Fox said: “After careful consideration, we decided that giving readers of FoxNews.com the option to see for themselves the barbarity of ISIS outweighed legitimate concerns about the graphic nature of the video. Online users can choose to view or not view this disturbing content.” Like I said before, they wanted to elicit an emotional response, rather than a logical one. Emotional= moar bombs. Logical= stop funding Syrian rebels who often ally with ISIS if you don’t understand what the heck is going on there.

Isis tweet on FoxNews

It seems this awesome display of journalistic integrity had, as usual, some unintended side-effects: Twitter accounts belonging to ISIS supporters are sharing the video around, linking directly to Fox. One such account tweeted boastfully that “Whoever is looking for the al-Furqan version [of the video], here it is and it cannot be deleted because it is on an American network.” Al-Furqan is ISIS’ media outlet. Awesome, Fox finally gets the viewers it has always been craving….. Young, very very religious and not averse to burning a few people alive.

It seems YouTube and Facebook are not putting up with any of Fox’s shenanigans. YouTube had removed at least one link to the video and a spokesperson for Facebook had told the Guardian that it would remove any link to the video.

Most mainstream news organisations chose to only use still images, while “terrorism analysts” roundly criticized Fox.

The executive director of the “Terror Asymmetrics Project on Strategy” (quite the mouthful), Malcolm Nance is part of a “Tactics and Radical Ideology” think-tank (that’s a lot of err… credentials… for someone that is about to state the obvious) and serves as an expert on counter-terrorism and radical extremism told the Guardian that by posting the video Fox News was propagating “exactly what ISIS wants to propagate”.

“The whole value of terror is using the media to spread terror,” he said.

A senior associate in homeland security and terrorism at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Rick Nelson, said that posting the video actually strengthens ISIS. Nope, not   obvious at all.

“They’re a terror organisation,” he said. “They seek to strike terror in the hearts and minds of people globally, and by perpetuating these videos and putting them out there into the internet, it certainly expands the audience and potential effects.”

“These groups need a platform, and this gives them a platform,” he added.

Nance told the Guardian that showing the video would also further endanger other hostages, including the 26-year-old American aid worker currently held by the militant group.

“[Fox News] are literally – literally – working for al-Qaida and ISIS’s media arm,” he added.

“They might as well start sending them royalty checks.”

So, in conclusion, Fox has joined the ranks of terror organisations. I KNEW it!

In all seriousness though, I believe that videos like this should be examined thoroughly by people who can stomach it in order to ensure that our media organisations don’t just make up stuff and feed it to us. Remember Iraq? On the other hand, one should never play into the hands of the terrorist organisations of ISIS and Fox by feeling the fear that they so desperately want to play.

  1. Stupid! WHY WE KILLING! It seemed to me in the video that fox was publishing this for reviews only I don’t know what seems to be going on but why does this torturing people have to happen why cant we all just live in peace and that is why i believe anonymous is doing good for the people of the world

  2. Right. The video is staged. SERIOUSLY.

    Right. Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes, two great Jewish Zionists! LOL

    And right. Stop funding the Syrian rebels, support Assad who uses chemical weapons on his own people, and ISIS disappears.

    What PLANET are you folks on?

  3. Completely agree with the above comment, Censorship is not the answer. I by no means wish to fuel the propaganda but simply ignoring these acts WONT stop them from committing such atrocities and anybody who thinks the opposite is beyond retarded.

    @Pamela – Are you really that stupid? I’m struggling to imagine how somebody can actually think that’s faked? have you seen the video or are you simply jumping on the ever growing bandwagon that most ignorant Anons are jumping on that when something bad happens it must a hoax planned and executed by the US?

    A man has burned alive, I wouldn’t wish this on anybody and couldn’t even begin to imagine how horrific that must have been, idiots like yourselves with comments like that really piss me off!

    Rant over

    • Im sorry but calling people stupid and idiots while not being able to think why she perhaps thinks why the video might be a fake..
      I also believe it is faked as we live in 2015 and it is quite easy.. even for amatures to make such a video with special effects.
      after watching the video, i actually searched the Internet and found this video.

      So please think before scream because to me, THAT seems rather dumb…

  4. Goodness and kindness come first all religions come after that. This insane stupidity belongs in the stone ages. Once we all become enlightened that we are all the same, we can end this madness. I hope all religions wish them to receive 21 horney hippopotamuses in whatever afterlife exists or not. An eternity of some serious hippo love will do. Atheist please feel welcome to ask for the same. Remember all humans are equal first!! religion second, by law, is the beginning of the solution.
