So much photo Trickery at Reuters, my head is spinning.
Would it be fair to say, that Reuter is using "smoking mirrors"
Way to go, guys!!! Expose these liars.
I LOVE the blogs. They are on the Front Line in this war. We are so blessed to have them in these dark days. It makes me proud to be an American that these very feisty, brilliant blog-warriors are working day and night.
The term " smoke and mirrors" was popularzied by newspaper columnits Jimmy Breslin c.1975, has been said to derive from carnie slang for magic acts and 'freak show' displays that depnd on 'trompe l'oeil' effects
While we sleep the Front line Bloggers are protecting Truth, Justice and the American Way ;-)
It used to be said that a picture is worth a thousand words. That is still true.
A doctored photo is worth a thousand words of condemnation for those who doctored it. photo shop may be fun for a joke or to clean up some zits on the face of the one pictured, but when photo-shopped pictures are accepted and used by a major news source its proof of a bias in that source and means that source is not credible and should be ignored, if not destroyed.
Yeah, these people must be in shock right about now. They always think they're the smartest ones in the room.
Can not even get the site to load this morning, it must be swamped.
I wonder when the NY Slimes will run a job opportunity for a professional photoshop cropper capable of turning innocent photos into glaring examples of Israeli aggression. Resumes to be submitted to al-Reuters of course.
What do the photoshop experts here think of this?
Reuters admits altering Beirut photo
Reuters withdraws photograph of Beirut after Air Force attack after US blogs, photographers point out 'blatant evidence of manipulation.' Reuters' head of PR says in response, 'Reuters has suspended photographer until investigations are completed into changes made to photograph'
A Reuters photograph of smoke rising from buildings in Beirut has been withdrawn after coming under attack by American web logs. The blogs accused Reuters of distorting the photograph to include more smoke and damage.
The photograph showed two very heavy plumes of black smoke billowing from buildings in Beirut after an Air Force attack on the Lebanese capital. Reuters has since withdrawn the photograph from its website, along a message admitting that the image was distorted, and an apology to editors.
Want to go nuts? Try to determine who actually owns Reuters. Traded in Europe stock exchanges under the symbol RTG, it is also traded in the USA as RTRSY. Nonetheless, in providing info for the US market it does not list its major owners, institutional or otherwise. Its founder Paul Julius Reuters, a Jew, must be flipping in his grave as Reuters today offers some of the most anti-Semitic fare published in Europe, and subsidiarily in the USA.
As Bob Seger would say.
