Fake News Border Girl Photo Wins World Press Photo Award

Why should Pallywood get all the fun, when Migrantwood can join the party?

Remember the photo of a crying girl on the border, who had been dragged along by her allegedly irresponsible mother, and which was used to push family separation narratives, even though that was not what was taking place? It's being honored yet again.

The winning photo, “Crying Girl on the Border,” was taken by Getty Images photojournalist John Moore. It shows the 2-year-old child crying while her mother, a Honduran asylum-seeker, is detained by U.S. border agents at the U.S.-Mexico border in McAllen, Texas.

Even though this image was widely shared amid outrage over the Trump administration’s policy of separating families at the border, it was later determined that the child and mother were held together at a processing center and released weeks later, pending a future asylum hearing. Still, the World Press Photo jury felt the image was powerful enough to merit the prestigious award.

Walter Duranty would be proud.

The picture depicts parental misconduct, but has been used to accuse Americans of being monsters who torture babies for fun. Of course it deseves an award. Any pic that makes Americans feel bad and aids a lefty policy victory deserves a sea of awards. So long as it isn't the truth.
