Award Winning Fauxtography

Fans of photoshopped news photography might want to check out this one, which won a Pullitzer Prize, which I suppose is a lot like Yasser Arafat winning the Nobel Peace Prize. The photographer (and I assume, the digital manipulator) was none other than terrorist associate and propagandist Bilal Hussein, now in the custody of American forces.

A commenter to The Jawa Report broke this story, so check out Howie's post for more details. The dude "sitting on air" is the clincher.

this is a really threatening shot. I wonder what the photographer was doing there, right in the middle of war scene?

Pullitzer Prize for photography is given only if the picture is Photoshopped.

Terrorists again…it is sadly. Why did it won the prize? I cannot believe that there were not other pictures which could win the prize. I hate all that it is connected with terrorism and I hope that this war will end soon and peace, love, hope and gladness will replace it.

Was that serious? Or just a 3nd grader?

"3nd" - LOL.
Apparently, I'm the "3nd" grader. Teaches me to be mean to little kids.
