Yet another example of a photojournalist fudging the truth out of laziness and manufacturing an award-winning photo of an event that never occurred.
What amuses me is the blog this was posted on, of the Guardian’s Roy Greenslade:
You’ll notice two identical photos of him, which appear to be part of a template for article pages on the blog.
You’ll also notice that one of the photos is flipped horizontally. Last time I checked that was a journalistic no-no, even if one is under the delusion that human faces are symmetrical and it doesn’t matter.
I guess some photo manipulation is more acceptable than others.
