Skip to comments.Reuters admits to more image manipulation
Posted on 08/07/2006 9:23:25 AM PDT by Efraty
Reuters has withdrawn a second photograph and admitted that the image was doctored, following the emergence of new suspicions against images provided by the news organization. On Sunday, Reuters admitted that one of its photographers, Adnan Hajj, used software to distort an image of smoke billowing from buildings in Beirut in order to create the effect of more smoke and damage.

Never believe a Muslim...Adnan Hajj....LIAR.
Reuters will continue to manipulate photos, as per usual, in all other 'news' stories.
The ?third-doctored picture was by the same notorious "photographer"
and has the same distinctive smoke pattern. Does it not?
[GOSH. GASP. GEE.]
You mean ... you mean ... Muslims lie???
Methinks you are jesting.
Isn't that the perp (Adnan Hajj) in the photo himself?
Rusty Shackleford? Isn't that Dale Gribble's alias on King of the Hill?
Why don't these guys just hire Pixar or someone like that and they can make up all the phony crap they want. They can have images of Mohammed striking Israeli jet out of the sky, they can have thousands of dead babies, they can show IDF forces popping our womens' eyeballs. Man, they have the money. Why not go for it! Who needs some Muslim fumbduck with Photoshop??
Your picture is not showing up for me.
Sounds like the perfect place for Dan Rather to be working.
Good work Freeper Hadean for catching the first one!
Reuters = Scum
Looks viable to me, i.e. not doctored.
The "cloning" in the first withdrawn photo is friggin' obvious to anyone who has actually doctored a photo that way. This photo's smoke looks properly natural.
(Could be wrong; that's just from a glance at a shrunk image.)
Yeah, well news services ain't Gospel neither. Fake but accurate?
If you look at the blowup at http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3287774,00.html you can see that the smoke trail of the three 'missiles' are exactly the same. Wide spots and narrow spots match. Wiggles match. Obvious clone, for one thing.
As Rush said this morning a classic expample of the "drive by media" doing its work. Tossing handgrenades at the story and then driving off to do the next thing at the next story. All quiet except for Fox News from the rest of the MSM on another fake but accurate story.
I found another

If you visit this site, note that it uses the term "reutered" as a verb meaning a falsified photo.
I love that! From now on, when we discuss a news photo that has been altered with the intent to deceive, let's call it a "reutered photo."
Maybe we should also call a forged document a "rathered" document :O)
The talk is that this one is indeed a fake as well, but the smoke is not the big clue. (IMO it is indeed suspcicious that black oil-fire smoke is pouring out of a lower apartment room hours at all, never mind that it's still pouring out apparently hours after the place has been devastated.)
Perspective is the *cough* smoking gun in this photo. Here you can't see anything but the porch for anything that's just four stories up. You'd have to be pretty close to the building to get that kind of perspective. Is this guy twenty feet in front of the Leaning Tower of Lebanon? This one's a composite of two separate shots.
Hey, maybe PhotoShop will even add a filter called "reuter."
You click the button, and it gives you a quickie one-pass fake that wouldn't fool a ten-year-old.
LOL thanks! Done!
This photo was so crudely altered anyone with the slightest knowlege of Photoshop could see the fakery. Obviously Reuter's editors are engaging in propaganda rather than news reporting. I would half expect them to run a photo of Fidel riding in the Tour de France and expect the world to believe it to be truse.
No, it does not.
If my staged theory is correct it could explain the small amount of smoke coming from what is left of the front door. the smoke looks more like something is burning on the floor just inside the door than smoke coming from somewhere inside.
(Too many people around here obviously don't have enough to do on Sunday night...)
The new "Reuters" photoshop filter will take any picture and tilt it to underscore a particular agenda. Maybe give it some submenu options, e.g., no wmd, haliburton, global warming, leftist marches, evil republicans, religion of peace, chimp, lesbian gay, and Vietnam service.
The evil republican filter will give any person in the picture piercing white demon eyes and a hint of a snarl. The leftist marches filter will triple the number of marchers, the haliburton filter adds environmental disasters to the background scenery, etc,.
The shadows seem off, but I need a better image to work with.
I've posted twice already Reuters photos of the same women in front of a bombed building which has been used two different times captioned with two different dates. Either this woman is the unluckiest home owner in Lebanon or at least one is bull.
See photos here:
probably a looter
Same woman fifteen days apart.

Good idea! Fewer syllables than "photoshopped."
I'm not sure if this is real or not, but I just saw this one Reuters. Proported to be the last photo taken before Flight 11 hit the Twin Towers. Amazing if real, but again, I'm not sure.
The disturbing make believe photos from this disturbing make believe event are shown below. Dont allow children under the age of 30 to view this horror caused by Israel. Of course, this is Bush's fault.
No Problem! Here comes your Bomb!
Is it real? Or Is It Reuters?
