Reuters: bad review!

just so I don't lose track of it... (posting problems on Dan Gillmor's blog)


do you mean you don't think they *could* succeed with THIS?

re:" I am pleased to announce today that we are working with Adobe and Canon to create a solution that enables photo editors to view an audit trail of changes to a digital image, which is permanently embedded in the photograph, ensuring the accuracy of the image."

this looked the most promising thing to me (from what they were talking about) -- some of the other things are just funny... especially this (the doctoring up of pictures) being a big surprise for them!

"How could this have happened and what can we do to prevent it happening again?"

My hunch is that it had something to do with assuming people just wouldn't give in to temptation when faced with the opportunity... (and doing close to nothing to prevent that from happening...)
"We conducted a review which concluded this was a case of an individual photographer, ignoring Reuters rules, and embellishing two photographs for aesthetic, not political, reasons."

bad review! (time to wake up and face the facts...)
