The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Qana: Fraud of the year?

Looks like one of the disputed Qana photographs has been recognized as one of the REUTERS Photos of the Year (2006) (yeesh, how did I miss that story?).

Mentions of the controversy surrounding the photograph? Not so much.

Is this the new accountability that Reuters is aiming for?

Question for the readers: What do you think Richard's first reaction was to this?


Rusty has some excellent commentary on this story as well.

The elusive Jamil Hussein has been spotted in Qana. This photograph -- shot by a stringer for both the Associated Press and Reuters -- is proof positive of two key facts.
