BUSTED: The Economist Photoshops Obama To Make Him Look More Depressed And Alone

Henry Blodget | Jul. 5, 2010, 7:03 AM | 6,451 | 40

It's just not quite the same for a president to be glancing down at the water while chatting with others on the beach as it is for the president to be solemn and depressed and alone while contemplating oil-soaked sand.

But the Economist didn't have a picture of the latter. So they made one:

Et tu, Economist?

Gives a whole new meaning to the old saying.....

"Are you going to believe what your eyes see or what I tell you?"

Guess that answer would be neither when it comes to the media.

The only person that matters in this country now is Obama, we are all invisible just like the people that were photoshopped out of the picture.

Important point: When a liberal outlet does this to a conservative subject, like when Reuters Photoshopped additional smoke into an aerial view of Lebanon to exaggerate the damage done by Israel, obviously, conservative sites should be incensed, but liberals never mention it. Now, when the reverse happens, and a liberal icon is the victim of a Photoshop scam, we're still incensed. Consistency and commitment to playing by the rules is what separates us from the DUmpsters.

After that was exposed, people had some great fun with taking it to the extreme...

The pic with the photoshopped Godzilla stomping through the city was priceless. Now I wish I had saved it. :D

on edit: Found it! Gotta love the world wide web.

See, I know that this was a fake, because if it was Israelis who had unleashed a giant monster, it would have been spelled G-dzilla, in deference to the orthodox. :D

The fact that there were people out there that did not automatically recognize that that image was photoshopped amazes me! :rolleyes:

Dan Rather still claims that an IBM Selectric was capable of typing in MS Word/Times New Roman in 1972. Go figure. :rolleyes:
