Dan Rather took the picture

Embarrassing Bush Photograph Exposes Reuters Contradiction -- 09/15/2005:
PDN Newswire spoke with one of Reuters' picture editors - Gary Hershorn, who explained that sections of the photo were overexposed so a Reuters processor used the Photoshop technique to "burn down the note." Hershorn told PDN Newswire that the photo was not manipulated in any way, but that it was standard practice for such news photos to be enhanced.
So the photo was "enhanced" but it is still accurate...the conversation will now morph into "doctored" photos as helped along by Republican talking points...
