Airbrushing Protest Babes
Read it, for it is good.
As part of that post, I included this image:
which I originally found on Melbourne Indymedia.
Via Michelle Malkin, I now know that the image was actually a Photoshopped version of this:
which was a photo of women in Iran bravely protesting the country's Islamic leadership before Iran's presidential elections last summer. This image was copied and altered by Code Pink for use as a recruiting tool for a group who may not share the same ideology as those in the picture it 'borrowed'. More at Publius Pundit, here.
It had me fooled.
Update: Leigh has links to other examples of Photoshop Propaganda.
Update: The victims of this photographic fraud have issued a statement.
