I'm just not convinced its a big conspiracy, especially one the company as a whole is running.
    I tend to disagree.
    If such a famous news agency is deciding to manipulate images, it would do it in the little details, where it may believe that it would not get caught.
    That's why I'm wondering how many times did they actually get away with it.

    And that is true from so many reasons right now.

    And like it or not, you're the only one who's disagreeing with that statement.

    Pete, I am always interested to hear the... ahem logic behind such comments.
    Please do not hesistate to elaborate.

    If you don't, we'll just chalk it up to another typical, useless Euro knee jerk.

    Personally, I think it is intentional.
    Of all the ways to crop an image, they went to eliminate the peace activists on a humanitarian mission... I mean terrorista holding a knife.

    Mistake? Yeah right.
    If you believe that, I've got a Democrat candidate you should vote for in 2012 who's a uniter and will bring hope and change.

    I get what you're saying but thats where I see the Catch-22, the doctoring has to be done in the small details or it becomes too obvious. But if its done for such minor things I can't really it having a really affect. For example I couldnt see an individual changing their opinion on the flotilla incident or larger Israeli, Palestinian, or regional issues simply because a knife was or was not in a picture. So im undecided.

    Eh? What are you drinking? The cropping is not comical lol. They just show half the picture for god sake, cutting out the mouth on mouth action. There is no putting cropped heads on dogs or other things...... Talk about distorting the facts on your end.. gezz.

    Hey not my fault your media are pathetic in reporting the facts. That the US media gobbles up every word the IDF states is not my fault. Ever heard of balanced reporting? We get that in Europe.. we get reports from both sides and get to make up our own minds.

    Seriously, the fake outrage against Reuters by Fox News and the conservative right, when their own media organisation in Fox News does it constantly is.... so ironic, not to mention highly biased for the "fair and balanced" network.


    This is retarded. Are you seriously thinking this wasn't done for humor?

    No, not because a knife is not in the picture, but if this is really a policy of the news agency, if they have done it a time after time, then by no means is that simply a minor influence.

    Let's take the commercials industry for example. As you may know, in the commercials industry, it's all about convincing the viewer that the product is right for him.
    How do they do it? Through the small details, such as the background color.

    No no, let me correct: you believe that you get reports from both sides. You believe that you make up your own minds.
