FROM THE APPARENTLY NEVER-ENDING JOURNALISTIC IRONY SERIES: People are asking "how can you trust blogs when they're not Big Media?" After yesterday's fake-broadcast example, we now have a much more serious faked-photograph incident at the Los Angeles Times in which a photographer merged two photos to produce a dramatic -- and deceptive -- composite image that made it looks as if a coalition soldier was threatening a refugee and child. For shame.
Then, of course, there's this.
UPDATE: Dale Wetzel sends this link describing how a sharp-eyed Hartford Courant editor caught the fabrication.
