A photographer was outraged at the way Newsweek cropped a photo he had taken of Dick Cheney. They also paired it with a quote Cheney made about CIA interrogations
He wrote, on the NY TImes Lens blog:
Newsweek’s objective in running the cropped version was to illustrate its editorial point of view, which could only have been done by shifting the content of the image so that readers just saw what the editors wanted them to see. This radical alteration is photo fakery. Newsweek’s choice to run my picture as a political cartoon not only embarrassed and humiliated me and ridiculed the subject of the picture, but it ultimately denigrated my profession.
