If one looks at the normal resolution image (first pic in thread), letters with unconnected “islands” like “O” clearly block out the background pattern, which is consistent with a digital forgery. Even jpeg compression would bleed some color, but the above sample is entirely opaque in the “islands”. The sloppy registration flaws in the lithography is also convincing evidence of a forgery.
Not to mention that, if I’m not mistaken, it came from Daily Kos.
On that basis alone, we probably should have assumed it a forgery until proved otherwise.
That's what's done in every state and territory.
Nothing new here ~ just some pale imitations trying to do a Dan Rather deal.
Remember, at some point we had 22 different major documentable claims about the Dan Rather forgeries and I was able to rationally dispose of 21 of them. The only one that passed and couldn't be rejected for objective reasons was "kerning". It was pretty obvious that the photocomposition guy who did the job left "kerning" in the on position when he set up his Microsoft Word commands.
"kerning" didn't happen in the world of typewriters back when "W" was in the Air Force.
Frankly, I doubt the puke is human but none of you guys want to do the hard work to prove that, and so far all your work on certificates like this is demonstrating nothing other than the fact that WP programs are used to set up digital document print formats, which is hardly news.
