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A Reuters photograph of smoke rising from buildings in Beirut has been withdrawn after coming under attack by American web logs.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 Reuters has since withdrawn the photograph from its website, along a message admitting that the image was distorted, and an apology to editors.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.
Shakedown, breakdown, takedown

Let's just say it. Adnan Hajj is an enemy propagandist agent posing as a photojournalist for the western media. Sixty five years he would have been a Gestapo agent.
We really need a list of characters.
1) Photo Journalists - Adnan Hajj, Nassar Nassar
2) Johnny on the Spot and Strike a Posers - Abu Shadi Jradi aka Green Helmet Guy
years = years ago
FACT OR FICTION FROM ADNAN HAJJ OF REUTERS..YOU BE THE JUDGE
"...Well, if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
I've seen your face before my friend
But I don't know if you know who I am
Well, I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off the grin, I know where you've been
It's all been a pack of lies..."
What! That's not real!
Smoke rises from Beirut international airport after being hit by Israeli warplanes July 13,2006. Israeli aircraft attacked Beirut airport and killed 22 civilians in strikes on south Lebanon on Thursday, dramatically widening its reprisals after Hizbollah captured two Israeli soldiers and killed eight.

How about Laura Ingraham's "Lie of the Day," with the Anastacia song "Why'd You Lie To Me."
I'm sure I'm behind the times but has anyone sent this to Fox or Drudge? It is Sunday, Drudge might go for it.
I knew you would know it was not real, but.....for those DU'ers who are scanning our post, I wanted to clarify.
In both of these photos, the brightness of the explosions seems somehow inconsistent with the brightness/contrast of the foregrounds. In particular it seems that the explosion in the left photo should reduce the brightness and contrast of the building directly in front of it. But it doesn't.
When you've been lied to once, do you ever give someone the benefit of the doubt again? Until I have proof otherwise, I am assuming all Hajj photos are fakes.
If Reuters is Lying for Hizbollah, then they are in deep trouble.
Here's another one to investigate:
Is this the same old white-haired dude appearing on both these hezzbollah videos?
In this one he loiters behind the female speaker claiming innocent victims killed in Baalbeck (point :37 on the video)
In this one, white haired dude claims to speak as head of family of hezzbollah suicide bomber, offering to send the rest of his sons to martyrdom (point 1:24 on video)
The amount of TREASON in the MSM is making my head spin.
All of these islamic enablers should be rounded up and incarcerated.
They are willfully aiding our enemies on a daily basis.
They will only get the point when their muslim heroes grab them, and their children, and saw all of their heads off with a dull blade.
I believe this story is orders of magnitude greater in importance than some isolated embarrassed photographer who "embellished" his work for some good copy. It shows that the entire news stream from the ME is being manipulated, orchestrated, and choreographed by Iran, Hezbollah, and their sympathizers.

A Lebanese protester chanted slogans inside the torched Danish Embassy in Beirut yesterday.
The Bigger the Lie, the more it will be believed, until they are found out, and they always are.
Yes LGF has been swamped since last night.
Hey Reuters, you kind of forgot how the Internet took down Mary Mapes and Dan Rather back in 2004, didn't you? You can't fool us all the time anymore.
I don't like the black line around his pants legs at all. Red flames, black border, blue jeans, NFW. Just eyeballing.
Good catch - the black border along his right leg looks like a snip job.
Too bad when can not hear from "little Green footballs" this morning, so far he has busted Reuters Lies, and has been given a death threat by a Reuters employee.
Note the difference in pixellation between the buildings in the foreground and the sky and explosion, etc. I am not a photoshop geek, but maybe someone here could explain if that is 'kosher' (sorry, couldn't resist) or not.
