(h/t - Michelle Malkin and FromThePen.com
In reading Rice won't rule out U.S. troops in Iraq in 10 years
I found the photo snapshot of Condoleezza Rice suspect.
Respectfully sir, why is the USA today doctoring Condi Rice photos?
Compared with the unaltered photo one can clearly see the changes.
I would like to see the USA Today issue a correction to the public regarding the doctored photo. Aren't doctored photos just as bad as misrepresenting facts in print that do require correction?
Unaltered AP Photo by Mikhail Metzel
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a correction and explaination should be forthcoming.
So....what we have here is another example of someone tweaking reality to suit their own agenda. I have to admit when I first heard claims by Katherine Harris that the photos of her were doctored I scoffed a little before seeing the evidence, but it is very blatant. Michelle Malkin has a great synopsis here. As we approach the 2008 election and technolgies improve even more this doctoring will only increase unless there is a bin of undoctored photos for all to reference from and some form of standard setting and accountability in news is set (queue bloggers :).
