Well, thats the most incredible story I have ever heard regarding the Catholic Church. I have never witnessed any behavior even CLOSE to what you are describing. If its true it should have been reported to the Bishop for the area. jdn

In every endeavor, one can find corruption, dishonesty, lustfulness and men given to power. The business of "religion" is no different.

So, what does a man do? Seek God, not man.

Just as you do not quit going to the grocery store just because a grocer was caught molesting a child, so one should not quit seeking God because man is fallen.

Al-Reuters Doctors War Photos In Lebanon

Posted by Captain Ed

Charles Johnson at LGF demolishes Reuters for publishing a laughably doctored photo of Beirut, attempting to make it look like the Israelis bombed the city indiscriminately. Readers do not need any particular expertise in photography or digital editing to spot this phony -- smoke patterns get exactly duplicated over and over again. Even buildings get duplicated in this amateurish attempt to manipulate images for political purposes. And guess who gets the credit for the photography? Adnan Hajj -- the same photographer who documented the Qana attack that now looks more and more to have been a phony story as well.

This isn't just one reporter and a producer going nuts at a network news division. This shows that Reuters has either complete incompetents as editors or that the entire British wire service has chosen one particular side in this war. Check all the links in Charles' post, and try to keep from laughing out loud at how utterly stupid Reuters considers its customers to be.

UPDATE: Here's the link to the photo itself.

Reuters 'Fesses Up

By Captain Ed on Media Watch
Captain's Quarters

In a refreshing change for a global media outlet, Reuters did not claim to have received the infamously doctored photograph of Beirut from Lucy Ramirez at a Texas rodeo, but instead admitted that the image had been manufactured. They have also started disciplinary procedures against Adnan Hajj, the hack that has generated other questionable war-scene photography:


<<< A Reuters photograph of smoke rising from buildings in Beirut has been withdrawn after coming under attack by American web logs. The blogs accused Reuters of distorting the photograph to include more smoke and damage.

The photograph showed two very heavy plumes of black smoke billowing from buildings in Beirut after an Air Force attack on the Lebanese capital. Reuters has since withdrawn the photograph from its website, along a message admitting that the image was distorted, and an apology to editors.

In the message, Reuters said that "photo editing software was improperly used on this image. A corrected version will immediately follow this advisory. We are sorry for any inconvience."

Reuters' head of PR Moira Whittle said in response: "Reuters has suspended a photographer until investigations are completed into changes made to a photograph showing smoke billowing from buildings following an air strike on Beirut. Reuters takes such matters extremely seriously as it is strictly against company editorial policy to alter pictures." >>>


Ynet News credits the blogger who first scored the kill on this photograph: Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs. Ace o' Spades, Hot Air, and Left & Right get honorable mentions as well. They did a great job picking this one to pieces, and Charles can score a big takedown on this one. Now we would like to hear an explanation from the photography editors at al-Reuters why they didn't catch this prior to publication. After all, as the MSM continuously reminds us, they are the experts and have multiple levels of editorial control, blah blah blah.

Here's an image we'll want to save:

That place does have a character that should not be tampered with!

Never thought Duluth would be so hilly.

Almost arrested with girlfriend hitch-hiking across that long bridge Southeast of town.

Needed water pump for my Volvo and none to be found in Iron River, Wisc.
