They were fast, weren't they?

Times corrected the bad caption so fast that the posting on my blog went out on the feed with the corrected caption that I cut and pasted from the (unknown to me) updated page.

But I do have a PDF of the original caption, which had identified the manipulated photo as the original, and the original as the one doctored by the photographer.

Crazy things happen late into the night.

and what a lousy job the person did with PhotoShop! A NYT's photo editor didn't spot THAT?

(Blog operator's note) The bad Photoshop job was spotted by many others; the Times was reporting on the scandal and using the photos to illustrate the story. By the time the Times published, the Reuters photographer had been fired and all of his photos removed from the Reuters database.
