Three Of A Perfect Pair

If you’ve already read Zombie’s post (linked to in the post immediately below) busting the San Francisco Chronicle’s attempt at photo manipulation, then be sure to check out an item from yesterday by Neo-Neocon. It’s on a similarly manipulated photo, which has become something an icon, for reasons very different than what’s actually captured in the photograph.

And Jonah Goldberg’s 1999 piece on AP photographer Eddie Adams’ relationship with South Vietnamese General Nguyen Ngoc Loan is also worth reading if you’ve never seen it before, and aren’t familar with the before and after history of one of the most infamous photos of the Vietnam War.
