In a report for the BBC about Libya's propaganda efforts, Wyre Davies admits that the Libyans are "not the only ones practicing the dark art of media manipulation", adding that "they're not very good at it".

The report comes following an attempt by Libyan officials to fool western journalists by pretening that a child injured in a car crash was injured by a bomb. The event has since equally been exploited by the UK media.
