Faux-Astroturfing

 

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.

Heck, are they too desperate to Photoshop their photo and insert more people? I never heard of it before. Not on politics and government.
