Reuters Photo Fraud summary Reuters Photo Fraud summary

Zombietime has a good summary of the photo fraud discovered in the Lebanon reporting in: Reuters Photo Fraud.
The four types of photographic fraud perpetrated by Reuters photographers and editors are:
1. Digitally manipulating images after the photographs have been taken.
2. Photographing scenes staged by Hezbollah and presenting the images as if they were of authentic spontaneous news events.
3. Photographers themselves staging scenes or moving objects, and presenting photos of the set-ups as if they were naturally occurring.
4. Giving false or misleading captions to otherwise real photos that were taken at a different time or place.
The author goes through them, one by one, with examples.
