    BP admits it 'Photoshopped' official images..............

    I call your attention to the following picture, which appears to show BP hard at work, cleaning up its mess, as seen through the front window of an airplane cockpit. What's wrong with this picture?



    Notice that the pilot is holding a pre-flight checklist. Now why would he be doing that, if he is already in the air? The very upper left of the picture explains it.... Oops, they forgot to remove the control tower from the picture when they were photo shopping it. Is it any wonder that BP is going down the tubes? If they can screw up a simple photo shopping job this badly, just think about how competent they would be at a more difficult task, you know, like drilling a mile down on the seabed..... Wait. We've seen that too.

    The oil giant was forced to issue new guidelines to staff to “refrain from doing (sic) cutting-and-pasting” after several official company images were found to have been doctored.
    And what forced them to issue these new guidelines, you ask? Oh, I'd say a few thousand or so facepalms.

    Article is here.

    Now, that's bad! Almost as bad as the Reuter's photocrap job they did w/the the Isreali commandos.

    Big mistake. They should have hired me to do their Photochopping. ;-)

You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Did you see the original and photoshopped ones? I really don't see the big deal. They cropped something out so that you could see more of the water, that's really hardly misrepresenting anything.

    They should've just admitted that the photo was of the pilot and co-pilot working on crossword puzzles just prior to a disastrous crash.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    One of the actors they hired to play pilot looks to be about 97?

    Why not just take an aerial picture of the water from an aircraft such as a helicopter where the view wouldn't be so restricted? Makes sense to me.
