News service, Reuters is back to its old tricks. You may remember during the second Lebanese war Reuters was caught making news pictures look worse than they were with a little touch of Photo Shop For example this picture of the aftermath of an Israeli air strike appeared this way when distributed
But this way when published via Reuters
Reuters is now doctoring its pictures from the violence aboard the Guerrilla Flotilla. For example, this picture appeared in a Turkish Newspaper. The guy on the ground in green is one of the Israeli commandos. Notice the red circle I added. It shows one of the terrorists on the flotilla boat holding a knife.
Now here is the same picture as first released by Reuters. Notice that they cropped out the the terrorist’s knife?
a second Reuters image in which a knife and blood are cropped out. This image appeared on the website of the IHH terrorists.
Notice the two red squares I added on the right side of the picture. One shows a knife in the hand of one of the terrorists and the bloody hand of an Israeli soldier. The one on the bottom right shows the blood of the soldier who was dragged to the ground after being stabbed.
Now the Reuters Version, notice anything missing? The knife and the hand are gone and the blood is almost gone.
