NYT Altered Unflattering Cover Photo

The New York Times isn't having a good week. They are on rocky financial ground, and the online magazine Salon caught the paper "misidentifying" a prisoner in an Abu Ghraib photo.

Now the paper has been caught intentionally altering a photo of former Virginia Governor Mark Warner which appeared on the cover of their Sunday magazine. Warner was actually wearing a charcoal suit, light blue shirt, and dark blue tie, which the Times changed to an unattractive maroon and pink ensemble. The photo editor says they were attempting to achieve "dramatic effect".

Hmmm, so dramatic he'd look unelectable compared to Hillary?
