Do you want to see proof of the media's bias in the recent Israeli conflict?

Little Green Footballs has alerted the world to this "news" picture from Reuters:

As if you really need me to explain what's going on: the smoke is completely fake - as fake as Bush national guard memos. The only questions are 1) does Reuters know that the smoke was fake and published the photo anyway? 2) did Reuters fake the smoke themselves? and/or 3) did Reuters publish or create these photos on purpose?

One thing is true - they are ridiculously fake.

UPDATE: The original photo has now surfaced. Reuters should be very embarrassed - check back for a silently deleted picture soon.

UPDATE II: Reuters admits the photo is fake; claims to investigate...
