    Wow one other time right? So this means a pattern rolls eyes. Also it could have been cropped to take out that yellow thing, since as a photographer I would not want something like that effecting the photo subject which was the guy on the ground, and not the guy with the knife.

    That was an asinine reply.

    I'm quite serious. The claim is the photo. If you don't see the knife what alternative conclusion can you draw? That the soldier did it to himself? Really, do you think anyone thought that?

    Especially if you were promoting a lie.

    Meh differences of opinions, since not every photographer is trying to lie in his job. He was trying to take something that was obstructing the view point of the subject which is the guy on the ground out of the way of the picture. That is not telling a lie it is just getting a better picture of the guy lying on the ground.

    Since the photog was trying to point out one thing and hide another.

    So that means he lied? He is just trying to make an emotional peace of photography which is kind of a normal thing too do thought they did come clean, and admitted their mistakes.

    Little Green Footballs. The blog that took down Dan Rather.
    That guy has really taken investigative journalism to a new medium. Using, ironically, supposed journalists themselves as targets.

    You're right, it's very ironic. Reuters proving that pretty much any news network can be dishonest and biased sometimes, and all certain people here can do is ramble on about Fox doing this without it even being related to the topic. Cosmic level irony indeed.

    Now come on RH- You got a photo of the guy on the ground, with his face blurred. What details did the cropped picture add to the soldier? None. It took away details that were significant to the situation at hand.
