CBC Propagandists Caught Doctoring Photos

The dhimmis at al-Reuters aren't the only ones who know how to doctor photographs to help them spin what they cavalierly refer to as "the news." Check out the picture Canada's CBC used to chastise Environment Minister John Baird for trying to protect his country's economy from the Kyoto farce (via Small Dead Animals):


Politics Watch reports:

The head of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News faced questioning from Conservative MPs on Parliament Hill Tuesday about what they called a "doctored photo" that appeared in April on CBC's news website.
The public broadcaster's news web site carried an altered stock photo of the Toronto skyline that was noticeably darkened and made the smog and atmospheric haze appear much worse than in the original photo.
The altered picture of the skyline accompanied a story about the Kyoto accord and was first noticed by a Canadian conservative blogger.

Tony Burman, editor in chief of CBC News, must have struggled mightily to keep a straight face while insisting that the ham-handedly doctored photo was the result of a "process error" and not indicative of left-wing bias. Anyone naive enough to rely on the MSM for information might just believe him.

Well, in all fairness, it was doctored with a "left-wing" bias. That's not anything worse than democrats lying or MSM printing false stories against the evil republicans.

I'm not even sure that's a crime anymore.

It's a virtue! Saving the world requires some sacrifices after all...
