This was an attempt by our comrades over @ Xinhua to embarrass the "West". Unfortunately it's China gettin' Punk'd. This is goin' viral and they can't blame the Onion this time.

It is embarrassing for the state media. They really have no experience fact-checking since they had previously decided what was the facts. {:soso_e127:}

Is there any accurate journalism anywhere in the world?

Yes there is accurate journalism out there, but sadly it's becoming rarer.

Those shots are so obviously faked. For s start the straps aren't tightened up correctly, secondly the condemned in a US execution is placed in a chamber where the gurney is located and the feed lines go in to the room from an external room, there's two duplicate lines, one on each arm. The executioner either feeds the lines manually or via a pumping machine, it's normally a 3 injection process though a couple of states use 2 parts.  The condemned is usually sedated before being taken to the execution chamber.

Most of the lethal injection chambers have a windowed room for the witnesses, which often include the victims family or representatives, in some cases a member or two of the condemned person's family as well as members of the press, legal counsel etc.

I could go on but what ever film the shots were lifted from was a B grade production. I can understand a junior journalist falling in to the trap of believing the images were real, but no seasoned veteran journo should fall for them.
