Sept 18, 2010: Hosni Jumps Ahead

This is a picture of the major players at the Mid-East Peace talks, taken at the White House.
Egypt’s president, Hosni Mubarak, is on your left.



But when the picture was published in Al Ahram, owned by the Egyptian government, Hosni Mubarak has jumped ahead.



The jig is up...
Quote:
As The Lede explained on Thursday, an Egyptian blogger had noticed and publicized the fact that the newspaper had manipulated a news photograph in a way that seemed to flatter Mr. Mubarak without informing readers that the image was not real.
But, but, but...
Quote:
Ossama Saraya, the editor of Al Ahram, Egypt’s oldest daily, argued in an editorial that the altered photograph “was meant to be expressive,” of what he called, “the precise political position of President Mubarak” in the quest for peace in the Middle East, the independent Egyptian newspaper Al Masry Al Youm reported. The editor defended the image as an expression of Mr. Mubarak’s “unique role in leading” the talks.
No harm, no foul, just a silly embarrassment, methinks.

Not necessarily shopped.
Except for Netanyahu, the arm positions of each man has changed.
They could have simply changed positions between two pics.

No, I didn't know I was supposed to.
Again, I'll try to do better next time.

My sentiments EXACTLY on Haggis! HAGGIS

Politicians are always great posers - but poor comics. Their jokes are always "on us".

Bruce, temper! Tsk, tsk.
I think it is obvious that a photograph was modified (is Photoshop the only way?) to place Mubarak in a more attactive light.
It just wasn't the top photo that was changed, but another one a step away.

this is a horrible parody of a "free" press.

the arm positions aren't the same, because everyone has been reversed. look at the angle of the ties.

You need to hone your "looking" skills. There is one due with a "reversed" looking tie. Look at his legs.

Tsk tsk my ass, "shopped" means altered photograph, by any method.
In both the original post, and the link, Al Ahram clearly, succinctly, irrevocably, stated the photograph had been altered by them.
