JihadTV and its porno.

We have been slammed with the recent scandal of the Iraqi prisoner abuse. Soon after the media hype, it was found that a lot of them were porno pictures of the internet, and that the people posing in the photos were actors. See JihadWatch for more.

Since porn is forbidden in the Islamic world, why would these pictures of clearly porno background have gone to the TV? This could indicate what mental state the media is in, too sex driven to focus on reality, resorting only to fiction to make it big. If the media is allowed to freely watch porn and put it on TV for all to see, can we really think that porn is banned? Clearly the ban is a face put up for the benefit - or shock - of the Rest of the world.
