The 1st photo was uncovered by Little Green Footballs
http://littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/?entry=21956_Reuters_Doctoring_Photos_from_Beirut&only

It was quickly picked up here on FR
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1678470/posts

Reuters admitted the first photo was doctored and fired Hajj

The second photo (F16) was discussed at Jawa, http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1678950/posts

if the photographer is let go...

Or whether he simply changes his nom de guerre and continues his ways, keeping falafel and pita together via al-Reuters' currency.

Remember - According to Koran, it is perfectly acceptable to lie to infidels - especially if it furthers the spread of islam. So be ware of anything from muslim sources...

MSM is circling the wagons on this one...

the Little Green Footballs dude was on Drudge last night. He gave FreeRepublic credit for the RATher, 'superscript-scam' too. Drudge didn't know that FR's Buckhead was responsible for that coup.

Reuters. Let me think ... isn't that the news agency that has refused to call Islamic terrorists what they are ... Islamic terrorists! Yes, by golly

It's not just Reuters

It will be interesting to see if the suspended photographer is let go.

His services are no longer being used by Reuters. Keep an eye out for him popping up elsewhere.

What is MORE interesting are the things being discovered by looking through his PAST work. Now that we know the tricks he uses, some other questionable photos are being uncovered.

Evidently the photographer who took it wasn't satisfied with the damage done, because he fired up Photoshop (or some program like it) and decided to expand the reach of the smoke clouds.

What makes anyone think the so called original is really not also doctored with smoke and is just a prior version?

Well supposedly the photog has been fired. But he was freelance, and you never really fire those people, you just don't buy their stuff.

I'm more concerned with what this indicates overall. No one is really talking about that. Firing the photog is merely attacking the SYMPTOM. The problem, at it's base, is that the American MSM is working ACTIVELY AGAINST the U.S., all to further the leftist agenda they support. That is the real story that is being proven here.

Reuters has a DUTY, morally and LEGALLY to vet the photos and/or news stories they are ***supplied*** with, yet they don't. They are working against America, causing more troops to be put in danger and it is CRIMINAL. Someone at the top of that food chain needs to fired, not just the doer of the mullah's desires (the photographer).
