Related - I happened to see Monday's (7/31) front page of the Austin American-Statesman. There was yet another of Nassar Nassar's (AP) photos I hadn't seen before of green helmet guy carrying one of the often seen dead children (the one with the questionable bent arm) from Qana. Sorry, can't scan it and can't seem to find it on the web. Green helmet guy and Nassar must be joined at the hip. Wonder how much money exchanged hands.

I'm glad it's down, but I've got to get greedy and say I don't buy the 1408GMT on AUG 5 time. Maybe Aug 6 and they just made a typo, but my best guess is no way 2pm Aug 5.

Screw em all anyway. God'll kick their ass for us.

You gotta remember Rush refers to Reuters as Al Reuters, probably not by accident.

Now if they could just admit that 90% of their stories are doctored as well.

Yet, there are some here who continue to take the MSM at their word. Disgusting.

Here's the one they're going with as the corrected photo...

I wonder how they'll spin this? The simple truth "we were had!" is probably beyond them.

Somewhat off-topic, Little Green Footballs had a run-in with Reuters, so they modified their site meter to record visits from Reuters... they had four online when I looked a few minutes ago.

This is the kind of fakery that can easily pass by the casual reader who reads only headlines, the lead paragraph and photo cutlines.

As it's said, find a cockroach in your cupboard and there's probably dozens more in hiding.

How much you want to bet that the black smoke coming from the roof top is a handful of tires set on fire, on purpose, in cahoots with our Paliwood photographer?

Thanks for the great work. I still do not believe that the building in Qana, which fell 8 hours after an attack in the vicinity was caused by any Israeli ordnance. It was staged by the Hezdevils but how does one prove that like the great people did with this photo?

On the link you provided, there's a button for 'recommend this photo'. I wonder if Freepers should click and 'recommend' the picture so it'll make the 'Top 10 recommended photos'. The more people see this announcement, the better. Otherwise, I'm affraid this announcement would be the only thing they have on this issue.

The sad part is that the photographer perhaps simply gets a 'warning' (not to be that unprofessional next time), and that's it.

I doubt it. His ass is grass. Even if you don't believe Reuters is interested in integrity, you'd better believe that it's interested in not being publicly embarrassed like this. The editor who approved this to go out on the wire is probably packing up his desk, too (or possibly alone, if he did the hack Photoshop job).

Here's the message for Reuters... I did soft-pedal a little:

Fake Photo: with regard to your fake (photoshop enhanced) photo: have you fired the person responsible, or if you bought this from some freelance photographer, have you ceased doing business with this person? Also, have you reviewed every other photo from that source to see what other deception there may be? Please let the world know, your credibility is at risk.

Anybody with any sense must know that most of what the media spouts is embellished nearly to the point of fiction.

Only a lemming would believe most of the garbage the MSM puts out.

'Which begs the question, BEFORE the internet, just how much did they show and tell us that wasn't true?'

Do you remember that old show, "The Outer Limits"? The MSM controlled all that you saw or heard.

Walter Cronkite visited VietNam around the time of the '68 Tet offensive, one of the most decisive victories for the American and So V'Namese military. Cronkite went on TV and told the American people that Nam was "unwinnable" and he and the rest of the American press turned this victory into a loss. Think that could happen today?

I don't really even understand why the guy thought he needed to 'doctor' the original?

Seeing those two pics side by side the fake looks absolutely stupid. It looks like some one tried to make it look like a secondary strike caused a large fire but the smoke coalesces into a single plume in the middle of the pic. Awful.

Great post Backhoe.

Thanks- the Lizards at LGF deserve the credit, I just copied their stuff.

The "comments" are worth wading through- not just for more information and links, but the byplay among members is surprisingly familiar to any forum denizen.

If he can be tracked down -- and the IP wasn't spoofed -- the same principle applies. Sending from a company IP address is the same as sending on company letterhead.

Reuters is too lazy to doctor it. The original photog might be a more likely culprit.
