Another Cropped Reuters Photo Deletes Another Knife – And a Pool of Blood
OK, come on now. I mean, really.
Reuters has published this picture from the activists:
The picture is a cropped version of this photo from the IHH website (IHH is the Islamist group whose members rioted aboard the Mavi Marmara):
What did the Reuters photo editor crop out? A big knife and a big pool of blood.
UPDATE at 6/6/10 4:20:27 pm:
And it gets worse. I took the photo into Photoshop and increased the exposure to lighten the dark areas, and discovered that they didn’t just crop out the knife and blood — they also cropped out another badly injured Israeli soldier lying on the floor.
