Report, Don't Dramatize

The reporting business has always had to be strict about avoiding manipulation to maintain the trust of readers/watchers. One can debate the success they've had, but like them or not, they are our only pipeline for information on the goings on in the world. That's why it's nice to see Reuters taking the kind of action that they took in this case. Doctor one photograph and your entire career ends. Harsh, but that is the only way it can be.
