I Wonder If The Reuters Editors Would Catch This One

08-08-06.jpg
Lucianne posted the picture above with the following caption:

"Reuters responds to criticism over doctored photo of Lebanon attack with a replacement".

Update: Kim linked earlier to Allah Pundit's post that included a mention of the film, "Shattered Glass". I saw the movie just recently for the first time and wrote a short recommendation of it for those who have never seen it. It is incredibly appropriate to watch in light of recent events in the world of journalism. The more instances of fakery in journalism that are uncovered, the more I wonder just how many are out there that we will never discover. It makes me question so many of the stories I swallowed hook, line and sinker over the years. The internet, and now specifically the blogosphere, has hit the world of journalism like an earthquake. And this is just the beginning.
