Did Reuters Photoshop a News Photo?

Filed under: Media Bias, News — readthis @ 4:03 am

A blog is claiming that Reuters doctored a news photo from Beirut and the evidence is convincing. There are several animated gifs highlighting what appear to be cloned portions of the picture.

This is somehwat similar to The Sun using a photo of white Russians in a story about African and Arab rioters in France.

Update: Reuters has admitted the photo was improperly edited.  It’s strange that someone would do this.  There was plenty of smoke in the original without having to clone more.  Could it be an attempt to discredit the photographer?
