This business with Narcisco Contreras, the AP photographer fired by them for improperly altering an image, is fair warning about manipulation of photos, and rightfully so, but let’s not have a public lynching here. When a golfer makes an error in judgement he is disqualified from that tournament, but isn’t given life in prison. I think the AP should give Sr. Contreras a six-month suspension, then take him back. He was one of the guys who won them a Pulitzer in Syria last year for Christ’s sake, and it wasn’t given for manipulated photos, but for pictures taken courageously under fire.
