This is once again whining that is not factually accurate. No truth was hidden at all, period.
    Hard to see the details? Maybe you need to look at the photo again. The so-called "peace activist" is CLEARLY holding a serrated knife. Editing out the activsts' violence does not increase sympathy for the commandos. That is a lie.

    I have looked at it. Couldn't tell what it was. And it carries no meaning to the picture. Again, what do you think someone thinks? Do you really believe someone thought the soldier hurt himself? That his other soldiers hurt him? No, there is no toher conclusion other than he was hurt by those on the ship. Also, what does the accompaning article say? Does it say the soldier hurt himself?

    Again, your premise is seriously flawed.

    Not doctored. Cropped to fit. This is often done. Centered, cropped to fit, but not doctored.

    Stop trying to deflect with word games.

    There is no "cropped to fit." Digital photos can be resized. Whatever was done to that photo ... call it what you want ... it was done intentionally and substantially changed the meaning of the picture.

    This is photojournalism, my friend. What Reuters did was propaganda.

    There is crop to fit if you want it visable. And there is centering. Why is there no article accompling this complaint btw?

    You are aware that there are lots of free programs that could have reduced the dimensions in order to fit the whole photo? So I imagine that a big news company like Reuters could have used one of those or a professional quality program to reduce the dimensions of the photos.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    They are not doctored, they are cropped. There is a huge difference between the two and it is disingenuous for you to suggest they are the same thing. They cropped it the exact same pixel length from each side (top, left, right, bottom).

    You tell me what the purpose of the picture is, as related to the Reuters article that uses that picture. Is the purpose of the picture to show the activists did not do anything bad? No. Is the purpose of the picture to show the injuries to the Israeli commandos from the activists? Yes.

    Jesus, you guys are trying to put so much spin on something that Reuters admitted was an honest mistake.

    OMG U NOE WOT ELSE WOZ CRAWPED OUT???// TEH LIFEJACKET IS MISSSIN!!!!! THIS MEANS DAT REUTERS IS SUGGESTING TEH ACTIVISTS DROWN N KILL DEMSELVES!!!!111`111!!1!
