Adnan Hajj Outs Ace of Spades

Filed under: General,Media Bias,War — Patterico @ 6:48 pm



Well, I suppose if we’re going to be complete sticklers for accuracy, Ace of Spades is outing himself.

To be even more accurate, he will be appearing on Fox News Channel at 9 a.m. Eastern tomorrow.

But I blame former Reuters photographer Adnan Hajj, who provided Ace with the incentive to out himself, by altering photos of the Israel-Hezbollah conflict to make Israel’s actions appear more extreme than they were in reality. As I reported on Saturday, Ace was one of the first bloggers in on the action, along with Charles Johnson, Allah, and a blog called Left and Right. (My Pet Jawa is getting in on the act with some good work as well.)

I look forward to seeing what Ace looks like. Go give him some encouragement.

UPDATE: Pablo points out that the interview may not be live, so it may not be airing this morning. No matter. I’m using AllahTivo. I set the controls to “Allah” and let him tape it for me. He says he’ll probably have it on Hot Air later in the day.

  1. I haven’t followed this story much but it seems Mr. Hajj’s photos have been pulled by Reuters, and that Reuters identified another doctored photo:

    Reuters ended its relationship with Hajj on Sunday after it found that a photograph he had taken of the aftermath of an Israeli air strike on suburban Beirut had been manipulated using Photoshop software to show more and darker smoke rising from buildings.

    An immediate enquiry began into Hajj’s other work.

    It established on Monday that a photograph of an Israeli F-16 fighter over Nabatiyeh, southern Lebanon and dated Aug 2, had also been doctored to increase the number of flares dropped by the plane from one to three.

  2. Point of clarification: He says he’s being interviewed at 9:00. When, and actually if the interview will air is TBD. (I thought the same thing at first)

    So, do you think he looks more like Chuck Norris or kos? Maybe we should start a pool. Because Carrot Top is another option.

  3. Carrot Top. Definitely, Carrot Top.

  4. […] Ace of Spades was outed on Fox News today — possibly by me, and more probably by Adnan Hajj. (Or maybe by himself, but what’s the dif? Personally, I blame me.) You can view the footage here. […]
