Lightbulb Reuters Brings Fauxtography to the Gaza Flotilla

Reuters Brings Fauxtography to the Gaza Flotilla

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 via AP...

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?

CAMERA contacted the Reuters editor about the cropped photograph in which the knife in the hand of a Mavi Marmara passenger was cut out, and Reuters replaced the cropped photo with the original.

In the meanwhile, Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs has uncovered 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.

And there's more -- information from the Reuters Pictures Web site reveals that these images were IHH handouts, yet another indication that the following claim of an IHH official in the New York Times is a complete falsehood:
"Our volunteers were not trained military personnel," said Yavuv Dede, deputy director of the organization. "They were civilians trying to get aid to Gaza. There were artists, intellectuals and journalists among them. Such an offensive cannot be explained by any terms."
It doesn't really matter does it? The truth is that while Reuters claims that it is a News Organization, its history of Fauxtography proves that it is nothing but a PR team in support of terrorism.
