Reuters: Fun with Photoshop

A picture is worth 1000 bogus lies. "Don't believe what you read" are words to live by with the media these days. Now, don't believe what you see, either. Reuters continues to cough up new info about doctored photos. Little Green Footballs has more.

You know, this all reminds me of good old Dan Rathers. When we want to believe something soooooo bad, it blinds us to the reality staring us in the face. Some want to believe that Hezbollah is good. Israel bad. Bush bad. Anyone but Bush good.

One of my favorite quotes: The eyes bring to seeing what they want to see. --Shelley.
