The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Fauxtographic flag

Dinocrat beat me to it, but here's a fine example of staged fauxtography, this time involving a shot of the Israeli flag that was certainly intended to rally vivid emotion on the Arab street.

Dinocrat points to a Townhall Blog article describing some of the other fauxtographic works of the Reuters propagandist.

Many thanks to Larwyn for pointing this missed opportunity excellent story to me!
