Deceiving the World with Pictures

This article Fighting Dirty: Pictures to Provoke Hatred and More Suffering at Byzantine blog does a good job at exposing some Reuters tricking, I mean we can't have objective journalists reporting on reality, that's idealism!

This photo was first published by the Reuters as an image of a "dead woman being carried by the Georgian soldiers from the town of Gori". But this "dead woman", incredibly, is clutching the nurse's arm. (And was later changed on the Reuters website as you can see in the comments - check those out for even more pictures and news. The other markings are for reference to another picture. See more here.)
