Doctored photos 
6th-Aug-2006 05:12 pm
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.

Reuters did write "We are sorry for any inconvience." However, they did not admit to being wrong for publishing the photo. Reminds me of the UBF "apologies" in which they make vague statements to have made mistakes in the past.

Does Reuters think that the bloggers who pointed out the doctored photo are angry and bitter people who should stop bothering them?
