A Lesson Learned From The al-Dura Affair?

Network news stations have remarkably few reservations when it comes to replaying video footage obtained from sources close to terrorists.

Interestingly, CNN and BBC seem to have chosen to avoid showing this new Reuters footage, even though they regularly air the anti-Israel footage which Reuters has previously pumped out.
