Unless you LIVE THERE, little or next to nothing.
Especially if one is a consumer of the drivel and lies put out by the "son of Goebbels" US/UK corporate media.
If you believe that what you see on television as reality, ignore the clip below:
The extract supposedly from Libya is a shot from a demonstration in India, (specifically the Ramlila Maidan parade ground in New Delhi) in which supporters of Anna Hazare were protesting government corruption.
Perhaps the BBC had no footage from Libya that conformed with what they WANTED to show. The management at the BBC seems to regard its viewership as idiots, and wouldn't notice that the demonstrators are waving the flag of India, not Libya. The caption on the Indian footage was edited out and replaced with "Live From Tripoli". This re-editing required effort, direction and intent to deceive... in other words, "incompetence" can be safely eliminated.
The BBC is regarded worldwide as a reasonably authoritative news service. (!) Here is the stark evidence that they are no different to Fox, CNN, ABC, MNSBC, CBS, CBC, and the rest of the propaganda network that services organized violence.
Do you still believe what you see on "the news"?
