PHOTOSHOPPING KATRINA….Here’s an interesting little tidbit. The AFP photo below ran on the front pages of several websites yesterday, but apparently not every editor was happy with it the way it came over the wire. The LA Times made it look like a cloudy but bright day, the New York Times made it look gloomy and menacing, and the BBC chose something in the middle.
Via Yahoo, the original photo is here. Assuming this was put online with no modifications, it looks like the New York Times ran it straight.
