First of all, who is they?

Second, was the cropped photo used by any mainstream websites to show refugees drowning? I sure as hell can't find one

If you want me to post pictures of overloaded boats and dead bodies beached on the shores of European coastlines....I will do so. So if you are denying that people are dying during the sea crossings...Am sure graphic coverage can be found....And not displayed by a lot of the main stream media because showing actual dead people is somehow too distressing for some.

I think this is technically a fake conspiracy theory, as in the inventor of it has spread it knowingly that people's own confirmation bias will cause them not to actually fact check the picture.

Example :

None of these wonderful blogs and websites actually show the main stream liberal media actually using the cropped photo. So basically, the "uncropped" version has been used to fool people....As opposed to the cropped one that apparently has been used everywhere

I've almost given up... because even when you point out to people that it's fake... they just like your comment and leave the post there instead of deleting it.
I get the feeling that most people know it's fake and don't even care - they are just there for the sensationalism and sharing of viral posts.

Yeah, and it's as if they WANT the bullschit to be true, so they can say I told you so, or yeah, we saw that coming, or whatever kack agenda it fits into.
