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.

The difference between Reuters and UBF's fake are that Reuters did not publish the fakes on intent, but because they resorted to biased external photographers and did not thoroughly check what they got from them.

Reuters intentions are debatable, but at this point I will give the benefit of the doubt that they do not have an agenda. There are plenty of newssources with baised agendas that impact their publications. Nevertheless, Reuters took responsibility for the mistakes when they were exposed.

So, are UBF leaders more comparable to the photographer?
