Things just keep getting crazier with Adnan Hajj’s growing portfolio of manipulated and staged “photos.” And, what does one make of Reuters? Is their complicity in this unfolding saga the result of incompentency, sympathy, or did they outsource their photo editors to Iran?

The latest series of staged photo news comes to us from the good folks at Check out this story, “A Bridge Too Weird” where they conclusively demonstrate that Hajj — in his coverage of Israel’s bombing of the Qasmiya Bridge, near Tyre — just made shit up.

This is crazy!
