Reuters: An 'editing error'

Reuters is claiming that doctored photos that it published, which fail to show the Mavi Marmara thugs holding weapons are the result of an 'editing error.'
The agency has said the absence of the activists holding knives in the pictures it originally published to its wire was an editing error.

"Reuters is committed to accurate and impartial reporting. All images that pass over our wire follow a strict editorial evaluation and selection process. The images in question were made available in Istanbul, and following normal editorial practice were prepared for dissemination which included cropping at the edges," the agency says in statement given to Journalism.co.uk.

The uncropped images have now been reinstated as part of the agency's package of images from the aid ship attack.
And after what they did in 2006, they expect us to believe that?

Let's go to the videotape.

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. Sorry, but that 'editing' was no coincidence.

Yeah, sure.

Reuters fauxtography. If it weren't for bloggers, mass media deception would never be caught.
