Beware Photoshop

I've mentioned it so many times before it shows that I'm a bit obsessed, but it's clear that the global media can no longer be trusted to take photos.

Usually, they have taken it upon themselves to pass along hidden themes and attempted to mock conservatives. However, in the interest of fairness, take a look at this:

I apologize to those of you who are weak in the stomach, but that's precisely the idea, isn't it? What the heck is wrong with Hillary in this photo? Photoshop.

It seems the editors of Time magazine decided to make Hillary look old in order to make their favorite Senator Obama seem young.

They have used the "sharpen" tool to bring out the creases in her face and neck. Also, this "sharpen" has made the gold in her broach and glasses look much more gold - a sign of age.

Finally, and most obvious, you should not be able to read the title of the book! In fact, if you look at her fingers you can see how much the book cover has been digitally enhanced.

The reasons and motivation behind these modifications are in question, but their existence is quite clear and is unacceptable.
