. . . more ginned-up Reuters photos . . . First pic is from July 24th . . .<br><br><br><br><br>. . .second pic is from August 5th .. except the August 5th photo is of the exact same place as the July 24th picture. If the building was already destroyed on July 24th, how can it be "flattened" 12 days later?<br><br><br><br><br>This from the Reuters editorial policy:<br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>We do not take sides and attempt to reflect in our stories, pictures and video the views of all sides.

I think you are overusing the word bias. If Reuters is doctoring photos and changing photos to misrepresent the level of destruction etc. is a lot more than bias, it is down right deception.<br><br>We are what we repeatedly do. -Aristotle

I think Reuters has shown gross incompetence by their photo editor. They've been duped in a big way by their contracted photographer and his purposeful and lame propaganda. Look for the many blog reports on the Qana tragedy, and it was this same photographer that produced many of the staged shots.<br><br>Reuters is responsible for allowing these to be released. The blame is their's at the London office that edits the photos. Incompetence is something obvious, intentional bias is another matter altogether.
<br>I'd tend toward thinking that all the pictures were taken within a short amount of time<br>and then used as a kind of stockpile of stock images to illustrate the lead stories, rather<br>that sending photographers into the field following every missile strike.<br><br>But then again, I'm bias. <br><br>
I tend to think there has been one photographer, Adnan Hajj, who has repeatedly manipulated his photographs and staged shots in order to gain sympathy towards Hezbola and alter the truth of the Israeli attacks. Reuter's got duped and need to publicly admit to more than they already have.<br><br> <br><br>

Unfortunately no. But maybe they can be buried with dignity and not used as a propaganda ploy in a situation that already is a tragedy. What is more heartbreaking Celandine, an innocent dead baby or a dead baby paraded around and posed (link, clip a pacifier onto the body for added effect) for Mr. Hajj to sell to the world?<br><br>Photojournalism and propaganda are not the same. Matt was correct to post this, but I want to point out that Reuters had intended to have hired a photojournalist and was slow to realize they got something much different.<br><br>
