Arma footage used in journalism. Again.

Recommended Posts

You might remember when a UK documentary used Arma 2 footage and labeled it as "IRA 1988" a few years ago.

Well, history repeats itself - now with IS.

Gee, I wonder why Bohemia goes out of their way to deliberately disassociate their games from real war footage... oh wait, then outside media just resort to mods. :rolleyes:

Real life needs better anti-aliasing. Look at those terribly jagged edges on that terrorist's AK!

When Life gives you no live footage, use stuff from the Internet instead.

I guess we all know how "well" informed media outlets are these days.

I have contacted my lawyer and we are going to sue them. I want money for them falsly using screenshots taken from my website. I think I should be able to get a few million terrorist dollar from it.

Anyone up for some beers afterwards? Idiotic journalists are paying!

They should at least show a picture from an Arma 3 mod, it would be more up to date... :whistle:

That poo thing doesn't have millions probably so don't waste your moneys on lawyers for nothing.

Are you telling me I will stay poor? Fuck, I really thought this was my chance for all the millions I wanted all my life......

In that case, without me changing your name you will have to pay anyway for all the beers we need to get over this :)

Why are they doing this and what is the purpose of posting computer game screens in articles related to real life events? Isn't internet full of islamic terrorists that can be used as reference in the article.

^ Well todays "journalism" is down to three basic things:

  • See an article on competitors or some larger media site and copy it, shorten it a bit, and rephrase
  • using original image might not look convincing, so next thing is to google for some related images, and since Foxhound has done a good job on SEO, doing google search on the topic will top him on google search ;)
  • Now its left to format all that in their frontend CMS, upload the image and sign it as your own

</journalism>

Ahh, so its actually my fault (again)? Anyone wants to sue me?

I already put 12 beers (weiss beer) in the fridge, that should be enough for the first takers :D

I will also get six pack of La Trappe tripple for those coming in with the highest demands.

If there are no takers you wont see any news on saturday as than I am drunk as fuck...

But I did actually really contact them, I demand being credited on their crap "inform about anything in any way" site. :butbut:
