Ain't suggesting anything, just want to understand the sleuthing required to piece all this together... but how do we know that the 'photo kill' graphic isn't a fake?

Is - http://d.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/afp/20060806/capt.sge.cfo60.060806160927.photo06.photo.default-512x341.jpg - the native Yahoo/Reuters location for their published pics, or someone else's storage space?

I think we should take your suggestion a step further: We need an annual awards ceremony to bestow some sort of snotty statuette on the news organization and/or reporter who produced the most outrageous and obvious fake news of the year.

I have an obvious question: WHY THE BLEEPING BLANK DOES IT TAKE BLOGGERS OR INTERNET POSTERS TO DISCOVER THIS FRAUD AND POINT IT OUT?

Sorry for screaming, but I'm furious. The is the "great" Reuters, for cripes sake. The great, unbiased newswire service. Sending out fake photos to the world.

The next time some so-called journalist on TV or in the print media tries to mock the Internet, I'm going to projectile vomit. Hey print "journalists," hey ABC, NBC, CBS, et al., hey AP and Reuters, the Internet is the only place true investigative journalism takes place these days.

How do we know that the "accurate" one is not just a prior version of the original doctored photo? Say their were 10 evolutions of the original photo leading to the one that was published and that the so called "accurate" one is one of the 9 evolutions?

The problem this poses is that without a detailed explanation of what happened, all photo;s are now suspect.

How sweet. They're sorry for the inconvenience.

How about apologizing for the lie and firing the editor?

Notice how the pacifier is not covered with dust, and ask yourself how a clipped on pacifier could remain clip connected when a corpse is dragged from the rubble?

There is something more important. That pacifier and chain are too heavy for the shirt and too long for the child. No parent would attach such a long and heavy object to the front of a shirt so that it not only pulls the shirt half off, it is so long it would bang against the childs legs. And even if the parent did this, no child I raised would tolerate this pulling his shirt down. He would rip it off or cry until it was removed.

"That pacifier and chain are too heavy for the shirt and too long for the child."

Also this baby is reported to be 9 or 10 months old--crawling age. This pacifier would be constantly dragging in the dirt and should definitely show signs of wear.

Actually fixing colors is not allowed either.

To that level, no, that's doctoring. I was talking about fixing, not changing. It's what people used to do in the darkroom when developing, now it's digital.

Here's an exercise for the skeptical:

Put these photos in the proper time sequence:

#1

#2

#3

Hint:

The sequence starts with a pristine pacifier and clean hands. It ends with dusty hands and pacifier...

Hi, Truth. They finally started a thread around noon. And, guess what,

Conservatives are responsible for doctored photos!! Yes, it's true. I hope you feel properly admonished.

I won't post the link, so as not to sully our site. You can find it at DU under latest threads.

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.

You can file this under - The Difference Between Reality and Insanity.

Strange! In USENET POLITICAL GROUPS especially in alt.politics the libs are already claiming Rove is behind the photo and somehow passed it on to Reuters to trick them so they would be exposed like he did to cBS with the fake memos.

Liberals now believe their own propaganda.

As long as they keep on doing that, they will never win power un another federal election.

Lets encourage their alternate reality, which, BTW the majority of Americans have no capacity to share.

I can hardly wait to see Rush Limbaugh's Monday statements on AP's photodoctoring, sure to amuse most and enrage the spin doctors even further.

Talk about caught with their pants down, the Emperor has no clothes at all!

Al Jezzera has become the model for AP and Reuters, and not only that, they tour Lebanon only at the supervision of Hezbollah, as admitted last week. The government of Lebanon has suffered a coupe, this tells me.
