    You dismissed Reuters' history as irrelevant. Now you're saying I should prove my historical comment. I guess you think I have nothing better to do than go around in circles with you. Not gonna happen.

    LOL

    I love it.
    When common sense goes against the position you take up on an issue, just scream for "EVIDENCE, PROOF, EVIDENCE, PROOF". Then weasel your way out of everything because the only proof that you would accept is Reuters admitting they did it for political purposes.

    Sadly its like a pee wee herman game of "I know you are but what am I?"


    Use some common freaking sense, Im sick of this "PROOF EVIDENCE PROOF EVIDENCE" argument when you know damned well this is all opinion stuff, and if your opinion lacks common sense, sucks to be you.

    The fact that they have made multiple errors, years apart, on photographs depicting conflict between Israel/Palestine (or supporters), and every time these "honest mistakes" turned out to make Palestine (or their supporters) look more positive towards their readers/viewers is NOT an "honest mistake" at all.

    Failure to see this is the result of blind following, or a serious pro Palestine bias of your own.

    One should not have to prove that which is common sense.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    If it's so common, then finding proof for it shouldn't be a challenge.

    A man robs a bank at gunpoint. He is guilty of robbery. His motive is irrelevant. You want to make this all about intent. Intent is irrelevant. You're the defense attorney at the bank robber's trial shouting, "You can't prove his motive!" despite incontrovertible physical evidence.

    Reuters shows a pattern of manipulating the facts (photos). That is the only thing that is relevant here. Epic fail.

    You are right. It's even an established legal concept: res ipsa loquitur, or "the thing speaks for itself."

    Res ipsa loquitur - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Clearly the reason why the anti-Israel crowd is okay with hiding evidence and then claiming there's no "proof." The evidence they're trying to hide is damning.

    No, epic fail is your horrid false analogies.

    We are including intent because intent is the only thing that could be explain why (if this was nothing more than an honest mistake) Reuters would do what it is accused of doing.

    You cannot prove Reuters did this knowingly and willingly. So you attack Reuters' history, and then try to use past mistakes as evidence that Reuters does this knowingly and willingly. Burden of proof is on you since you were the one with the ridiculous claim. Do not get so upset because you cannot substantiate your assertion. It is not our fault your claim is baseless and devoid of factual reasoning.

    That has to do with negligence when a crime is committed. Mistakingly cropping a photo in a way that does not please Israel (shocking!) is not a crime. Great job with the irrelevant material!

    Reuters, at the end of the day, clearly edited photo to portray Israel in a poor light.

    Yes, they have bias. Get used to it, the world is biased and if you can't handle that then, well, I suggest C-SPAN and the Gilmore Girls.

    At the end of the day, you have nothing but your own biased opinion that Reuters did this purposefully (knowingly and willingly) with the intent "to portray Israel in a poor light".

    Fail. Come back when you can prove Reuters did this knowingly and willingly. There's this thing called burden of proof. I don't know if you've ever heard of it, but it is really common when debating.

    It's generally acknowledged that removing the weapons of the "peace activists" made the Israelies look like war-mad idiots. Are you saying that the exclusion of the weapons portrayed Israel in a better light?

    You've been watching too many Law and Order episodes. The photographer took X picture, Reuter's edited it to Y. They did this willingly and knowingly because they later apologized for it.

    Both in 2006 and 2010 they admited and apologized for the photo edits. They deny political motivation, but it is conclusive that it was done (cue Law and Order theme) "knowingly and willingly."
