The German magazine Berlingske
has discovered that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's supporters in Iran have been fudging the coverage of the pro-Mahmoud rallies
in Tehran. Given the fact that the Iranian government is also furiously suppressing all dissent
, I guess this isn't all that surprising. It's a good reminder that Iran sucks at teh Photoshop
, at least.
Of course, the fact that the Iranian government feels compelled to digitally insert fake people into a photograph could be a sure-fire sign that they're losing control of their population. Dictatorships that can't even astroturf a protest with real
people are barely worthy of the name.
