I'm glad to hear it was on TV in Toronto, because there wasn't a peep about it where I am, as usual. It is funny because I have seen the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal (a guy on death row who, his supporters claim, is a political prisoner) mentioned many times on the news here, but I never recall hearing the words "Ernst Zundel" coming out of any television set here in the USA.
Anyway, the number of university students here who call Zundel a Nazi is just unbelievable. They consider him a white supremacist. Now from what I have read about Zundel, he is neither (correct me if I am wrong). The media quite often, in such cases where public opinion is already swayed against a certain person, feeds the lies and the deception, which is truly sad. In some cases, however, it does do a good job at getting the name out there for those who have never heard of Zundel.
Of course, if they had pulled the camera angle out a little wider, those 3 guys would've been lost to the eye, lost in a mass of regular protestors and demonstrators. But they wouldn't pull that camera-angle out; I think that is a pretty safe bet to make.
It's like that picture from a year ago of the Saddam Hussein statue being torn down by the US Army. The US media aired video of "thousands" of people dancing and celebrating around the statue. Within days, what you might call "Iraq War Revisionists" proved that these "thousands" were atually "dozens" (if that), once different camera angles of the same event were found and examined. The wide camera angle showed a deserted City Square with US Tanks surrounding the area, and a tiny crowd around the statue.
Here is the links to what I am refering to:

In both the case of the Saddam statue and the case of the above link, a deliberate attempt is made to distort what happened. People wanting to distort the truth are known to edit photographs.
The Communists did it in the old days. There was one instance of US soldiers in Vietnam bowing their heads in prayer and looking fairly sullen. In the side of the frame was an Army Chaplain with a bible in hand. That photo was released in Western media with a caption of something like, "Soldiers in Vietnam taking a minute to pray". In China, the photo was also released, but with the Chaplain airbrushed out, and the caption read something like, "Captured American mercenaries en route to POW camps".
An army chaplain airbrushed out, a few smoke clouds airbrushed in, a "crowd" of jubilant Iraqis...why do they do it? In the case of the Communists, they used it for propaganda. In the case of the Saddam Hussein statue, well that too was used for propaganda purposes. Why then, did a Holocaust website alter the picture that Hannover uses as an avatar? Can anyone guess?
