Comments on: Katie Couric Before/After The latest news about the top pixel wrangling application on the planet.

This photograph represents the new, CBS provided “Gold Standard” in TV journalism. I realize that might not be a new Edward R. Murrow, but they should know that discovery of a doctored photo erodes any positive perception of how they handle the reporting of news at CBS. Perhaps they effectively Photoshop there reports in a similar manner by purposefully casting a more attractive light on a less attractive story (which I am sure is the case anyway). At any rate, CBS (Corporate or otherwise), should not be offering up altered realities.

In another light, I wonder how Katie feels about this. Basically they called her a fatty, visually.

In fact, CBS may have re-released a second retouched one, and their sister publication either didn’t know to find the earlier one, or never got it, and went with this one.

IF it were a newspaper or wire service who did the manipulation, then I’d have a big problem with it!
