But, let's not pretend like this speaks for all bombings. When I click on the link to youtube, the text in the description says "how real is the news?...blah blah blah". Real bombings happen all the damn time. Just because we have a "leaked" example here of a staged bombing, doesn't discredit that real ones happen. In fact, that could be exactly what the intention of this "leak" is...to make people care less about bombing videos by "exposing" them as staged. Everyone wants to blame the media, question the media...but no one questions what they see online...or more importantly WHY things are "leaked".
It's like those Hillary emails...all the Trump supporters loved them just because they were against Hillary...didn't give a second thought to who leaked them or why. Turns out, the Russians were *censored*ing with our election process. It's incredibly important to exercise critical thinking about what you see online. People can't just watch things like this, and think "Lol...all bombings are staged to make us look stupid and take advantage of us". When the reality could be, it was staged to plant that seed of doubt intentionally...and they're trying to make people think there are less legitimate bombings than there actually are. It goes both ways.

On a side-note, that whole place looks awful. It must be depressing living in a place like that. All the same color, dirt seemingly everywhere, no plants in sight. I guess is has to do with being a desert though I've been to dirt poor places in Mexico primarily and it was still in a lush green setting with living things crawling about everywhere.
