Photojournalists Faking It?

Oh yeah! It looks like some photographers are “creating” their own version of reality, now. I picked this story up at MetaFilter, but I wonder how many more of these “faked” pictures we’ll see. Unbelievable! Literaly!

In the picture, you can “clearly” see that a Photoshop “clone tool” was used to create a lot more smoke than was really there.

ADDED: I wonder how many more pictures were edited. At least one person has now been fired over this. All 920 images taken by a freelance Lebanese photographer have been removed from the Reuters database. Even more from the NYT, via Gateway Pundit.

    I don’t fake my news. Tom Cruise really does eat babies.
