The blog Little Green Footballs and its owner Charles Johnson have apparantly busted another forgery.
Nearly two years ago, Little Green Footballs was at the forefront of a group of bloggers that proved that documents used by Dan Rather in a story to discredit President Bush were falsified.
Today, a photograph, from Reuters, allegedly of bombing damage in Lebanon appears to have been altered using Photoshop or another tool in order to make the damage appear more dramatic and worse than it really is.
The story spread quickly through the blogosphere and by early this morning Reuters had admitted that the photograph was doctored.
Another embarassment for mainstream media? A victory for bloggers?
