    I think some of the activists said "no, we are not executing people", or at least I hope they did at some point(s) during the event. Perhaps the 'activist' casualties are concentrated in other areas of the boat and not at this location.

    I think they are helping him. Noone is kicking or hitting him, and he doesn't show capability of any real resistence. But he lived, we know that.
    That's a thought. Hopefully, it's true.

    Omfg!

    Until I saw that cropped photo, I thought the whole affair was the result of a lot of pig-headed people in an ugly situation. But once I saw that cropped photo, I realized that it was entirely the fault of the pig-headed Israelis. But now that I saw the uncropped photo I realized it was entirely the fault of the pig-headed people on the ship.
    Wow, it's just so freaking amazing the power of that one single photo. Totally changed my entire world view in re the ME. OMFG!

    Or maybe not. Maybe I still think its all the result of a bunch of hardheaded morons on the other side of the planet.
    I may be wrong.

Reuters has since withdrawn the photograph from its website, along a message admitting that the image was distorted, and an apology to editors....

    Reuters Caught with Doctored Lebanon Photo.... Again
    ...You would think that Reuters learned its lesson about publishing to the world photos doctored to create a false image. After all, they were caught with multiple false photos from Lebanon, and had to take down more than 900 images from one stringer. Reuters promised it would have "experienced editors" look at all such photos in the future. Has Reuters kept that promise? Apparently not.

    Your Weekly Dose of Reuters Bias

    and so forth. i mean, is this really surprising to anyone?
    Two -- are you serious??

    Example #1 states 'Reuters has suspended photographer until investigations are completed into changes made to photograph.'

    I guess you didn't bother to read the entire article.

    Example #2 'Newsbusters' - they describe a photo that has had the color altered, but don't include the photo... FAIL.

    So, one possible example, really, of cropping by an individual.

    Come back when you have 50 documented examples of specific cropping, that's a pattern of behavior.

    Otherwise you just sound like a far-rightie doing the 'liberal media' paranoia dance... very tiresome.

    50 times?!? It take 50 times for your to notice a pattern?

    Let me ask you question: Your spouse cheats on you. Do you wait for her to do it 50 times, to establish a pattern?

    It takes effort to edit out a knife. This wasn't an honest mistake.

    Despite being too lazy to read this entire thread, I have a comment to make:

    Reuters Investigation Leads To Dismissal Of Editor | Middle East > Israel from AllBusiness.com

    Here is a number of others from the war that were doctored by the same photographer for Reuters.
    In all cases, I see specific people who tried to slip a fake photo in and were caught and fired by Reuters who 'fessed up immediately, apologized, and blacklisted the photographers and editors in question.

    I'm failing to see the fault of Reuters, somebody they employed screwed up and they rectified the problem and came clean.

    And nobody has yet answered me when I asked WHY Reuters would doctor the photo in the OP. What the motivation would be.

    I really think Reuters screwed up in this, but they came clean about the incident once they found out about it. They have honest people among them at least I give them credit on that. However I have never noticed a pattern for Reuters unlike what I have seen with FOX NEWS, and MSNBC. Thought I might not have been paying attention really closely to Reuters like I tend to do for Fox News, and MSNBC.

    You do know this the second time that Reuters has been busted, right?
