Reuters Does it Again

I have written earlier about the editing and cropping done on pictures published by Reuters.  Now has exposed some more selective editing designed to prevent the exposure of the "peace activists" as armed thugs.

This is the picture published by Reuters:

This is the original picture before cropping:

We can see in the original the hand holding a serrated knife.  In the picture below we can see a magnification of the hand holding the knife and a pool of blood that Reuters deemed unnecessary to publish. 

Finally, with the help of PhotoShop, the picture was lightened, and now we can see not only the knife, but an injured Israeli soldier:

I guess Reuters didn't want to tarnish the image of the "activists."
