Loop of misinformation: loop into information
Earlier today something fell down in eastern Beirut. The Arab media of course decide it's an Israeli aircraft. The other media from all over the world who were standing around heard and just ran with it.
It was a zelzal missile, the IDF detected and bombed the lunch site of the missile and while not a direct hit it damaged the missile and caused it to launch. It exploded over Beirut, and that's what TV's around the world showed as an Israeli aircraft crash.
The zelzal has a 1300 pound warhead, and a range of about 120km. It would have reached Ako but not Tel-Aviv.
Al-Jazeera kept showing a video of it, and later even showed the crash site and the debris of a plane. Got to love the credibility here, The loop of misinformation loops on.
