Photographer Fattens FLOTUS for Fourth – Reuters hasn’t changed.

Tuesday, 9 July 2019

That photo by Carlos Barrias [Reuters] of President and First Lady Trump looked a bit odd to me, because within seconds of that photo, Melania Trump dropped 30 pounds.

Reuters has a history of photojournalistic  malfeasance.


Carlos Barrias’ Reuters bio includes this gem:

“I was very moved after covering the earthquake in Haiti. I was one of the first journalists from Reuters to arrive, and I was there for about 45 days. It was long and tough. You can see human beings at their most basic instinct for survival.

It was a very weird feeling in Haiti because I know I was there doing my job, and I would like to feel that our job means something for people, but at the same time I felt powerless. What do you say when a kid comes to you and asks you for water and food, and you have nothing but a camera? I couldn’t answer that question, and I felt frustrated that I couldn’t do anything.”

[Confidential to @ReutersBarria: I don’t know you, never met you, but you’re full of sanctimonious crap. You were in Haiti for 45 days without food or water? Sure you were. Please click on this. The first 50 seconds are just for you.]

Yep, that’s a 1930s precursor to photoshop. More info here.

Stairway To Aleppo?

Stairway to Aleppo

Earliest date found for this image [via Tineye] dates to 1 April 2014 with this caption:

Left After Assad Bombing in Aleppo.

I have a bit of a problem with that impossibility, and so does physics. Then I found this:

Stairway to Aleppo 0

That image dates to 23 March 2014. A more recent post dated 19 June 2015 comes from TehranPress.com. Even Google Translate can’t crack that one, but it appears that someone’s laughing.

Stairway to Aleppo Original

This seems to be the unadulterated version, with an interesting caption:

Residents try to find their belongings among the rubble left of their homes after what activists said was an air attack from forces loyal to Syria’s President Bashar Al-Assad in Bab Neirab, Aleppo, on July 27, 2013.

That caption and image came from The Atlantic via *ahem* Reuters… who have never *cough* posted manipulated propaganda photos.  [Hint: Google Islamic Rage Boy, Green Helmet Man, Wailing Woman Iraqi Missile Photoshop.]

Yet even that description (by activists?!) sounds specious. When Assad was under attack by the Muslim Brotherhood, why would his forces bomb his own people, unless Syria was already infiltrated by radical islam?

Oh, wait…

[Top image found here, and entirely by accident.]

[UPDATE: The images and commentary above were posted long before I realized the true horror of the ongoing atrocities in Syria. Apologies are in order.]

Yeah, it’s a photoshop from somewhere, but it made me smile.

London Growling – The Royal Palace Guard

Monday, 30 July 2012

Yeah, it’s stupid, and it’s been sitting around in our “What-To-Do-With-This-Baboso” file for too long, so we just HAD to post it.

The one below is both stupider and much betterer.

The original link for the 2nd one doesn’t work anymore, but it dates to 2007 if you want to hunt for it.

Even if it’s a photoshop photobomb, it’s still cool.

Nevermind the photoshopoopage, but that’s some odd robotic whizardry there. Even little boybots need to drain the oil occasionally, just like the big bots do.
