Reuters said today:
[that] it would apply "tighter editing procedure for images of the Middle East conflict to ensure that no photograph from the region would be transmitted to subscribers without review by the most senior editor on the Reuters Global Pictures Desk."

"Reuters terminated its relationship with Hajj on Sunday... An immediate enquiry began into Hajj’s other work," the statement said.

Hajj had provided Reuters with several images from the Lebanese village of Qana, many of which have also been suspected of being staged.

Ya think?

This rather tepid statement comes after a first picture was found to be doctored (more here, here, here, here)

The useful idiots of the MSM seem to have achieved yet another milestone on their [psycho]path to perdition. Someday they will have to decide what side they are on. Until then, they can continue to pretend that all they need is a "tighter editing procedure".

Some simple common sense and a bit of moral clarity would be extremely helpful too.
