Fox News Alters Reporters’ Photos

fox-20080702-steinbergIt seems that many Americans still consider the Fox Network to be a credible source of information.  Fox News has been caught misleading the public and even manufacturing false stories about Obama.  Yet, people still trust this network as a source for “news”.  Here’s another, more visual, issue of Fox’s journalistic integrity.  From MediaMatters.org’s article Fox News airs altered photos of NY Times reporters:

Summary: During a segment in which Fox & Friends co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade labeled New York Times reporter Jacques Steinberg and editor Steven Reddicliffe “attack dogs,” Fox News featured photos of Steinberg and Reddicliffe that appeared to have been digitally altered — the journalists’ teeth had been yellowed, their facial features exaggerated, and portions of Reddicliffe’s hair moved further back on his head.

This is, at best, biased and insulting (to everyone involved – especially viewers).  I wonder, how long will it be until Fox News starts showing doctored photos of Obama?
