Not much of a mystery - if the cord moved while the shutter was open, it would have blurred and would then become more difficult to see against a dark BG - if you look you can see the blur.

I just hope the wife of the soldier in fron t doesn't see this pic.

What is up with the non-stories on Drudge today?

I don't know, looks like it was photoshopped out.

Ernesto is now a non-story, and there is no other calamitous weather around to panic over.

The singer's left hand is slightly motion-blurred. This indicates that a swinging mic cord could easily have been *really* blurred. The room was probably a bit dim, and the exposure fairly long.

If you look at the soldier in between the one in front and the tall black soldier, you'll see his head is moving and it too is blurred - albeit slightly.

Honestly...I have to go with the "blurred cord" hypothesis on this one. What would anybody gain from photoshopping out half of a microphone cord? Plus, there's a slight blur that extends up from the visible part of the cord to the top of the picture.

It's not photoshopped - it's blurred. The bottom of the cord wouldn't necessarily move if there's enough play in the 'free' portion of the cable.

I don't see a blur.

Look close it's been photoshopped out... look like a "water stain" streak running down the photo where the cord would be

Unless you have a photoshop file composed of various layers, you can't blur something without affect what is behind it.

That is, unless you want to spend a few hours playing with it.

I see the blur too. It is pretty obvious. Either a bad photo edit or the cord was moving at the top too fast for the speed of the camera.

She was in the process of being teleported back to the mother ship. The disassembler always starts with the highest density objects first. In this case it was the mic cord.

I see the blur you refer to but where the heck does the cord go on the left side of her. It disappears so clearly. Could that much of the cord be blurred???

This is the biggest non-anything I've seen in quite some time. Much ado about nothing.

Photo was not photoshopped. The blur running down the middle of the picture is the moving microphone cord. Case closed.

The bigger mystery is why such a small room with such a small crowd to see those legs? Couldn't be Jessica Simpson, she's a bigger draw than that.
