Kurtz will always have a soft spot in my heart for his work on Rathergate, but between not challenging Ricks on Sunday and admitting here that he wouldn’t have known the Hajj photo was fake unless a four-year-old blind retarded child had told him, I’m beginning to wonder.

I don’t want to draw rolled eyes. But think about it.

Update: I think we should wager on whether the NYT photo has been ‘shopped or not, but I don’t know what to make the stakes. Anyone have suggestions?

All my chips on “not.”

Update: Did I forget to mention that Anderson Cooper admits in the clip that Hezbollah is staging photos?
