News photos doctored – beware

News photos coming out of the Israeli / Hezbollah conflict have been revealed by sharp-eyes bloggers to be digital fakes.   And, worst of all, it seems likely that US news editors are either complicit or utterly incompetent.


The recent discovery that the Reuters news agency released a digitally manipulated photograph as an authentic image of the bombing in Beirut has drawn attention to the important topic of bias in the media. But lost in the frenzy over one particular image is an even more devastating fact: that over the last week Reuters has been caught red-handed in an astonishing variety of journalistic frauds in the photo coverage of the war in Lebanon.
