Not at Reuters. Everywhere.

The report claims they’re working on getting hoax-detection software to detect manipulated images. Um…

Can someone fauxtoshop some more hair and a unibrow onto that guy?

Will the software work on their reporters and headline editors as well?

They will hype Daily Kos to the rafters but will not give credit to the excellent job done be Little Green Footballs.

And how about those pics of any Conservative where it catches them in a yawn, particular facial expression, angle of the pic. I think you all know what I mean. (Just look at most of the pics of ‘W’ and we all remember the infamous Condi, evil eyes shot.) I have seen far to many ‘biased’ bad shots of many of our reps but for the Left—its like ‘Makeover’ angles and shots.

MCPO, you had the same idea that came to my mind, when I read the above statement. I know it’s an abstract, but it would be cool to have SW to detect lies in articles and TV reporting. It could have zapped Mr. Rather :)

Al-Qaeda & co. know that propaganda is one of their most important and most effective weapons. It is simply unthinkable that they aren’t funneling all the cash they can into so-called “news” agencies like Reuters in order to influence the tone and content of “news”.

Is this like Bill Clinton’s Truth-Detecter?

I forgot, he didn’t have a Truth-Detecter.

Darn.
