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.
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.
Despite being too lazy to read this entire thread, I have a comment to make:
Context, my friends…Context.

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.
See my last post
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.
