Fake But Inaccurate!

Reuters has one-upped the folks at CBS and the New York Times and their "fake but accurate" coverage. Reuters, which insists on inaccurately describing terrorists who blow up city buses as "militants" or "freedom fighters" has been caught publishing doctored photos where the manipulation is obvious to the naked eye.

Why? Because Reuters has no pretense of being an objective news provider. They are an openly biased, anti- Israel, anti-US, pro-Hezbollah, pro-UN group of activists. I don't know a single serious-minded consumer of news who believes Reuters even makes a serious attempt at objectivity.

Does Reuters care? Not in the least. Most of their customers are in Europe and crave the "Bush is evil, America is always wrong" media slant Reuters provides.

But if you want facts, you'd better look somewhere else.
