Are you going to believe this woman, or your lying eyes? A Fauxtography Primer

Zombie has a great piece that provides an overview of the evidence that Reuters and other news agencies are participating, actively or tacitly, in a journalistic fraud.

Another good overview piece here, with some good links.

And don't miss this beauty (linked from the Ace of Spades on "The Passion of the Toys" (keep scrolling till you get to the guy with a suitcase full of the toys that mysteriously seem to pop up in the photos).

In sum:

"1. Digitally manipulating images after the photographs have been taken.

2. Photographing scenes staged by Hezbollah and presenting the images as if they were of authentic spontaneous news events.

3. Photographers themselves staging scenes or moving objects, and presenting photos of the set-ups as if they were naturally occurring.

4. Giving false or misleading captions to otherwise real photos that were taken at a different time or place."

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Bloggers will be going back into the archives to see just how far back the deceit goes. Blogs are not always right about everything, but the MSM has received a free pass for a long, long time. Not any longer. That's a positive development and one that will, in the long run, make the MSM better and more honest.

We aren't there yet, though. Time for some people to be fired.
