Truth in Newsvertising

On the left is the photo of Lou Dobbs that CNN uses when he posts screed about one thing or another - usually containing the words "American" "patriotic" or "illegal aliens." On the right is the cover photo from Mother Jones magazine from February 2007.

Now I personally like a gentle Photoshop touch-up for family photos; stray hairs, unsightly blemishes - ex-boyfriends, but if the angry white guy is having delusions of being in his forties, I think his term papers should be graded down a point for truthiness.

I don't know about you, but I think I'm right. And you're all wrong. And if you disagree, well you are just ruining America.
