More Debunking Of Protest Pictures

Perhaps as a photographer I'm more interested in this whole idea of misleading people with photographs and selective editing than most. Nevertheless, I think this analysis of yet another photograph from the anti-war protests last week is interesting enough to pass on. (Hat tip: little green footballs)

Follow the link and read the whole thing (it's not that long and is mostly pictures), but the short summary is that a picture that looked like a young girl showing here innocent feelings against the war in Iraq was seemingly staged by one of the organizers of the event and a member of the Communist party.

I'd prefer more information but even the analysis available, above, is something you'd never see in a mainstream media report.
