Explination of Reutergate

Even though Wikipedia has a bit on Reutergate, the best analysis of the charges (by bloggers, not police) agains Reuters is from Zombie Time. They go into great detail the 4 charges that bloggers have claimed:
1. Digitally manipulating images after the photographs have been taken.
2. Photographing scenes staged by Hezbollah and presenting the images as if they were of authentic spontaneous news events.
3. Photographers themselves staging scenes or moving objects, and presenting photos of the set-ups as if they were naturally occurring.
4. Giving false or misleading captions to otherwise real photos that were taken at a different time or place.

Read it and see if you still believe that the media is unbiased.
