Reuters infamous doctored Beirut photos
Sunday, August 06, 2006
fake that was published

Not sure if you've seen these yet, but it's a very popular subject at the moment. Long story short - a Reuters photographer got a photo published that was clearly manipulated if you know anything about Photoshop and photography. I will post some photos to show you, courtesy of Little Green Footballs, where I first heard about this.

Basically this photographer made Beirut look alot worse (damage and smoke wise) than it actually was. As it says in the article, I wonder how many of these fake photos have made it through in the past without getting caught. Reuters did admit the fake, and are quoted saying "photo editing software was improperly used on this image. A corrected version will immediately follow this advisory. We are sorry for any inconvience." He has since been fired.

There are some spoofs of the photo popping up, which are hilarious. Hopefully you can spot the spoof of the fake in the photos above. If you can't, terminate your life right now.
