Men at work ( More Adnan Hajj fake photos )
Power line ^ | August 07, 2006 | Scott

Posted on 08/07/2006 10:23:05 AM PDT by george76

Page 1 above the fold in yesterday's New York Times featured a photo (below) by our new acquaintance Adnan Hajj.

I suspect that not all is as it appears to be in the photo, and somehow doubt that Times readers will ever learn why that might be the case.

hajjnytimes.jpg

The Reuters caption reads: "A severely wounded Lebanese civilian is carried away on a stretcher at Maameltain bridge, after it was targeted by Israeli air strikes, in the north of Beirut August 4, 2006. (Adnan Hajj/Reuters)" (Thanks to reader David Butz.)

Probably started out as a photo of a guy in a lounge chair sipping Mai Tai's before Adnan Hajj got a hold of it.

Pictures will follow.

What's wrong with the photo? It's really Uncle Leo from Seinfeld.

Yeah, the point of this post, whatever it might be, escapes me as well.

Thanks for finding this but, there's more than one.

I think it may have been from the 2nd of August?

I don't know how to find it, but this Hajj guy was on the cover of the times with a back and orange picture of the strike on the fuel depot.

Priceless that the minute the story break about the world's present number 1 fake photographer...the NY TIMES is sporting a page 1 photo by the very same guy.

Guess good fraud is hard to find and must be shared by the MSM.

Do we have a picture of the man below the waist to repudiate/verify the "severely wounded" claim or are we just assuming that it is a lie?

That 'stretcher' appears to be about a foot long. Either that or it bends down sharply right below his shoulders.

This guy is an actor making himself useful to the old media for staged pictures.

is this the photograph of the purported corpse who woke up and fell off the stretcher when he was supposed to be a dead prop for the MSM that a caller to Rush spoke about?

One thing that looks amiss to me is that the hand grasping the right front of the litter isn't straining in the least bit. Ever carry a litter? It's back-breaking work.

If this guy was actually in the litter, he would be falling out about now as the corner collapsed. It looks like the man and the litter are actually resting on something out of the picture.

Don't know about a below the waist picture .. but the media have been pushing these bogus stories .. so anything this is possible

In addition, look at the fabric of the litter. Had this man's weight been carried fully by the litter, the material would be stretched taught.

IMHO, a "severely" wounded person would not be able to lift their head off the stretcher.

Kinda like "is." I guess it depends on your definition.

Re: Care to clue?

1) This Hajj guy was a stringer photographer for Reuters in Lebenon.

2) He got busted for photoshopping and was fired.

3) All of his photos have been purged from the Reuters database.

My point is that this guys work was good enough for the front page of the new york times at least twice.

Which could explain the look of panic on the man's face. He could be struggling not to fall off. LOL!

Here is a different photo from Maameltain bridge. Let's do a side-by-side comparison and see if anything looks odd:

I noticed that as well. One explanation is that the photos were taken from opposite sides of the bridge.

Camera man in the back and the other people on the left of the photo, there is sun on them.

Look at the guy on the left to the camera man's right. Now look at the perspective of the "his" feet. If the camera is facing him, why are we seeing so much of the tops of his feet and look at the perspective of the ciggarette butt.

All that's missing from your photoshop is the pic of Lee Harvey Oswald posing in his backyard with his rifle and Marxist literature.

Okay, uhm...

THIS IS A STUPID POST.

Stop looking for crap, if it aint there. So it is some drip on a stretcher. Big deal. Nothing to say it is or is not fake.

Some of you whack posters need to get a life.

We busted the photographer out already on something he definitely altered with photoshop. Now you're just trying to find crap and pretending like something is actually there.

Please. Stop wasting bandwidth.

And another view:

And another - this one clearly is looking southwards (note to the right, you can see the ocean and no hills:

And, once again, for comparision, the litter photo:

So, then, where are the palm trees in the other northward-facing photo?

A larger question is: What did Reuters know about these fabrications and when did they know them?

Could it be that Reuters as doing the photoshopping?
