Staged photos are far more prevalent than fakes. This is cheap propaganda, but the leftist media know no shame. Here's one of my old favorites. Palestinian youth (I think) contacts the press, arranges a photo-op and waves a flag for a whole gaggle of photographers. Tomorrow there will be sermonettes pretending to be "news" in many newspapers, accompanied by a staged photo in color.
Photos like this one show the manufactured, dishonest nature of media "news." How anyone can look at newspapers and TV news, much less TRUST it, is beyond my imagining.

(It is not possible to "go too far" criticizing liberals. No matter what you say, they're worse.)
James Nachtwey (center, in white shirt), is an excellent and highly awarded news photographer - e.g., Magazine Photographer of the Year seven times - so it must be an embarrassment to see himself in that photo.
