Reuters didnt mean to crop Israeli soldiers blood and the knives of their attackers out of its photographs from the Gaza flotilla incident. Its just that Reuters have a policy of cropping at the edges which conveniently removed these things. Israeli officials, facing criticism for boarding an aid flotilla bound for the Gaza strip, stress that their troops used deadly force in self-defense. News that Reuters had cropped two images of armed peace activists, including one with bleeding Israeli soldiers surrounded by armed flotilla crews supports the Israeli position and threatens Reuters with scandal.

Well, I know that all media in the US is sanitized of blood before being released to the public, but overseas.... it normally isn’t.
Sucks to be lying Reuters, now that there is an Internet.
The people at Reuters are made of the same stuff that I wipe off the soles of my shoes after a walk in the park.
remember this one from Lebanon?
That’s some of the worst ‘shopping I’ve ever seen.
Isn't it though?? And yet they still went ahead and published it as an original.
Sorry they got caught. Angry that they are losing control over the reader’s mind. Media=Propaganda
ROFLOL I guess a poor excuse is better than no excuse? Says Roto-Reuters?
Al-Reuters: Sorry! We always crop our photos at the edges.
DUH! The word cropping implies cutting off outside edges... Can you crop the center of a photo? If they need a particular image size the first step is to crop parts of the photo that don’t tell the story ,, then resize the image as necessary without retouching except maybe for contrast to ensure that when printed it will be clear.
