Funny that our friends at al Reuters news agency have egg on their face at least twice in the last month of fighting between Israel and Hezbollah. Doctored photos should be a great reason for the immediate firing of any independent photographer, yet al Reuters waited until a second doctored photo from the same fellow emerged before stating that they will no longer be taking photos from this guy. Good thinking, fellas.

Here’s the first manipulated pict. Apparently smoke was added (sorry for the size):

Here’s #2. This time, bombs were added–they were actually just flares:

Right On There!

Shows that too many journo’s are about making or slanting the news, not reliably reporting it.

Why this guy wasn’t fired on the first incident damages the credibility of what used to be (I think my memory goes back that far) a reliable news organisation.

Word has it that al Reuters has pulled hundreds of photos! Scary.

Off topic, but thought you might like to have a laugh at this “balanced” evaluation of the US/Cuba situation

This person is off with the fairies and then some.
