Reuters Admits Image Altered

Reuters got caught publishing doctored images of the war in Lebanon, they added more smoke to a down town scene to make it look worse, but used the cloning tool and copied the buildings too. It's only done badly if you know it's done at all. I bought it the first time through.

To hear Reuters tell it, it was all the doing of a 'freelance' Lebanese photographer; you know the kind. Recall that it was a Reuters employee who sent death threats to Charles Johnson at little green footballs earlier this year. Such a nice organization.

Personally I have my doubts about the image above. The fire just doesn't look real to me.
