NYT: Photo Caption was "Imprecise"

It's merely "imprecise" to caption a photo implying that it depicts a man killed in a bombing, when it actually shows someone injured after the attack?!

Besides which, as has been noted by Power Line (above) and others, the photo appears to have been staged for dramatic effect.

More of the latest news on photo fakery in Lebanon from Michelle Malkin, who has also written a new column titled "The Reuterization of War Journalism."

No, indeed, it's not simply "imprecise". It's dishonest and misleading. Even the fairly "left" broadcaster and radio talk show host, Ron Kuby, made a distinction between MISinformation and DISinformation. Of course, he felt it necessary to add a comment about how he's not so surprised given the White House leadership, la-la-la, but nonetheless even he was appalled. As I am. As everyone should be.
