I have no confidence in the media anyway. Why would this change anything?
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/16/06 - 1:05:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
What a crap editing job.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/16/06 - 1:11:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
Wow it looks like they didn't even try to make it look realistic. I never had much confidence in the media anyways.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/16/06 - 1:17:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
The press are lying, manipulative c*nts.

15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/16/06 - 1:23:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not really.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 8/18/06 - 6:11:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
... Was I supposed to be confident with the media beforehand? I am skeptical of everything I see or hear.

Saw a whole story about this
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 10/15/06 - 7:12:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, don't have that much confidence in them anyway.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 10/15/06 - 2:00:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
...like I was confident with them to begin with?
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 10/15/06 - 3:50:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
cinema for adult viewingo, for sure.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 10/15/06 - 6:31:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, didn't really surprise me.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 10/15/06 - 7:23:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
So the media now has tools to edit and doctor photos, so what. The media has always twisted the facts and it always will.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 10/15/06 - 7:56:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't listen to anything the media says.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/7/07 - 10:53:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
What an idiot. That's SUCH horrible photoshopping. I could do better, and I dont even HAVE photoshop. (Image Composer) XD
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/7/07 - 11:06:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's all propaganda in the first place.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/20/07 - 10:37:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
I never had confidence in the media. That photoshop job makes me cringe...someone doesn't know when or how to use the clone tool. stupid journalists.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/20/07 - 11:43:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
I used to have confidence in some news agencies, but I'm not so sure after they found some similar things by Reuters.
But I take everything I see with a pinch of salt, even those reports, so I'm not so sure.
Never mind - you never know, I could well end up in charge of a news agency, and then we'll see. Damn bias.
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 3/28/07 - 7:08:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, it doesn't. I looked at the picture and the photographer or whoever it is who edited the picture did a crappy job and what he probably did is add smoke and used "auto enhance" to make it look more dramatic.

I agree wholeheartedly.

I've never believed the media about most things.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/15/07 - 1:53:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
Wow, that looks so fake.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/15/07 - 3:18:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
I am suspicious of the media to begin with...

You can't take anything the news says blindly, they constantly bend the truth in favour of ratings, as well as trying to manipulate people into agreeing with their biased views on the world. They spread fear, anger, hate, and lies, all for money and ratings.

I'm glad most people on here can see past the media.

I never trusted the news.
