Doctored photos

Do you remember the faked photos of the MSU conference hall in the UBF newsletter? Now Reuters was convicted of something similar. The best thing was the official statement of Reuters when they admitted it. No, they did not say "sorry, it was a faked image." The statement was: "Photo editing software was improperly used on this image". Brian K. could not have found a better formulation.

I once attended a MSU conference so I remember how they carefully arranged the seating so that it looked fuller and more decorative, and the foreign guests had to sit in special rows etc.

But I am talking about the famous faked photo that was published on the title page of the UBF newsletter around 2000 (shortly before the reform, and mentioned in the letter with 15 questions to Samuel Lee). It was either photoshopped or simply a traditional cut+paste photomontage. On the photo, the hall had an additional third gallery filled with attendants that does not exist in reality. The fake was of course ordered by Samuel Lee.
