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.

You were at the same conferences I was at. They, under orders from Lee, actually roped off or taped off every other row in the auditorium at MSU so that people would sit in alternate rows.

The doctored photo of the Wharton Auditorium from a 1999 UBF newsletter can be viewed at http://mysite.verizon.net/vzep458t/teamubfhq/art/msuFake.jpg . This was the work of someone named Paul Choi, acting under Lee's orders, as always. Choi was also responsible for this in another newsletter. I guess he didn't have access to Photoshop at that time.

The doctored photo issue was the second of the 15 questions to Lee from 2000-2001.

After the faked MSU photo became an issue, I think they republished the same newsletter with a caption under the faked photo that read "(the artwork of Paul Choi)", an attempt to pass the blame off on Choi or to try to pass it off as some kind of joke.

A previous comment on the faked photo is at http://community.livejournal.com/rsqubf/84987.html?thread=470267#t470267 .
