    Hmmm..whoever would have thought that the media would be biased?

    With things digital these days - we need to be aware of just how much can be ''tweaked'' - in fact sufficient to make a pic tell a quite different story.

    In news matters tho it is IMO a near criminal act.

    The cloning of the smoke was kind of pathetic! But, please remember both sides are just so full of BS. If you believe more than half of what you see in the media, shame on you!

    I believe the media just like I believe my favorite liberal politician. You can say that I have the same level of confidence in both.

    There was a story in the Washington Post this morning that Reuters has fired the photographer. Playing with the images is very much against their policies!
