World Cup Runneth Over With Fauxtography
Here's a photo-op whose brazen concept is more impressive than the lousy images it produced. The Palestinians combined the security fence and Bethlehem with the World Cup, then managed to get AP photographer Tara Todras-Whitehill to show up.
How could any self-respecting photo editor put an image like this onto the wires?
At least these other weeks-old file photos from AP and Reuters (etc.) made it clearer they were watching soccer -- while making sure the security barrier was the obvious focus of an otherwise static image.
