Really not much for me to add to your commentary, PJ. Once again, we see the DUmmies slicing their own throats with Occam's Razor -- ignoring the truth and the simplest explanation in favor of a laughably complicated theory about a "setup" or "conspiracy".

To them, it's never about truth or lies, it is always about what they wish to believe and what will back up their pre-determined opinions.

Why, it's almost like the photographer WANTED to discredit... his own work.

To be fair, that was raised as a possibility both here and on LGF that night. The theory was that Reuters instructed the photographer to "pep it up" or lose his job for insubordination, and he, being a man of principle, decided to give himself a voice in the resulting investigation.

The revelation that at least three more of his photos are obvious Photoshop fakes as well (never mind Qana) put the lie to that theory of course.

Have you been listening to Limbaugh? Also note it's too Late they are ALREADY a tool for propaganda and have been lap dogs to this administration... So have you? been listening to Limbaugh? You stated almost verbatim what he did.. These photographers are obviously willing to participate in propaganda,'' Limbaugh said.]

Has Rush said anything about these photos? This happened over the week end, so I don't think Rush has had a chance to say anything yet.

And the forgeries just keep rolling in. Any chance of an afternoon Funnies post with this recent news?




Reuters admits to more image manipulation

News organization withdraws photograph of Israeli fighter jet, admits image was doctored, fires photographer. Reuters pledges 'tighter editing procedure for images of the Middle East conflict'
Yaakov Lappin

Reuters has withdrawn a second photograph and admitted that the image was doctored, following the emergence of new suspicions against images provided by the news organization.

Yesterday, a professional photojourno I know tried weakly to make a case that Reuters was "sandbagged". He is a classical liberal who is on our side more than that of the left and is mostly pro national defense, having served in VN. But photojournalism is his life, not just his profession. Since the wire services are the root of "the news", to distrust them is to distrust everything. I can tell this is an existential moment for him and it must be for many others, as well. He also is just totally confused by the one-sided reporting on this war. He really expected the majority of the media to be pro-Israel.

While this will further accelerate the demise of the MSM, where are we going to get the truth from half a world away? Hajj has also done work for AP. All the wire services employ local stringers. Personally, I want factual information. Where are we going to get this? More importantly, since FReepers have many non-MSM sources, where are the majority of people in the West going to get factual information? How do we maintain an open democratic society when no official sources of information can be trusted?

FAKE BUT ACCURATE ping

However, in DUmmieland, their reaction is that such doctored photos didn't really matter since they illustrated a "larger truth" or that the fake pics were really part of a dirty Republican trick to discredit the already discredited Leftist media (such as Reuters or AP).

It would probably be redundant since the DUmmie reaction would be the SAME. However, I am thinking of doing an audio podcast of Shocking Personal Revelation II.

Also Hezbollah is into every thing in that country. Their military part is just a part of the group. They build schools, hospitals and homes. I am willing to say they were right there to dig out the people. I do not think this is a group that is just into terrorism.

[The Hezbollah as warm hearted humanitarians argument.]

The Nazis had socialist programs for the "proper" German people. Drug lords in South America buy off the locals too.

Doesn't correct the horrible wrongs they do. It's like the defense attorney talking about a criminal's charitable works.

We deem any group that goes against Halliburton's wishes as terrorists.

[If you oppose Halliburton then you MUST be one of the good guys or so goes the bizarre DUhmmie reasoning.]

The shocking double standard is that the left cannot admit to a single good work ever by Halliburton but CAN point to good things done by Hezbollah, Nazis, and Communists.

Now every photo that displeases the Israeli government will of course be "doctored" or claimed to be doctored -- to some, proof enough.

We'll never know. Reuters has done a communist purge of this photographer's past work. Just as more evidence of faked photos was beginning to surface.

Reuters withdraws all photos by Lebanese freelance

Reuters withdrew all 920 photographs by a freelance Lebanese photographer from its database on Monday after an urgent review of his work showed he had altered two images from the conflict between Israel and the armed group Hizbollah.

AP Alert

Lebanese prime minister says only 1 person died in an Israeli air raid on the southern village of Houla, lowering the death toll from 40...

PJ. I think I pinged you on this yesterday: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1678623/posts?page=384#384

Begin of cited material from DU:
"What the doctored Reuters photos tell us... about ourselves".

"The photos were doctored not by some political agenda, but for one simple reason: sensationalism sells."....

"Finally someone gets to the root.....of the matter. It [doctoring of the photos] was driven by sensationalism. That in turn is driven by greed which is a cornerstone of, and virtue within, conservative philosophy."
End of cited material.

That just proves that he's part of the Rovian plot to discredit Reuters and deflect criticism of Israel.

It's easy to "think" like a DUmmie -- just imagine that anything that you don't like is Rove's fault, and the pieces all fall into place.
