Dan Rather at it again!

Wizbangblog has a photo reportedly of President Bush writing a note at the Security Council meeting at the 2005 World Summit and 60th General Assembly of the United Nations in New York September 14, 2005.

View the original Reuters photo at this link.

First, we have no idea of that this is a photo of President Bush, even it it were how would someone get that close to the president of the US? Third, it's an obvious photoshop job, note the "blurs" just don't match up. Fourth, The note pad looks doctored, the writing (letter 'R' for example) is out of proportion and doesn't match other examples of the President's handwriting.

Dan Rather redux?

I'm working to clean it up.

More samples of real Bush handwriting here and here.

Even so, note the obvious bias of Reuters in the caption:

"World leaders are exploring ways to revitalize the United Nations at a summit on Wednesday but their blueprint falls short of Secretary-General Kofi Annan's vision of freedom from want, persecution and war."

Yeah, right! Like this?

Yeah, Anan's a real prince!

UPDATE: Via Drudge a news sources states Reuters admits to using Photoshop on the picture. Link is broken, will update.

UPDATE:I Here is link, Reuter's claims that Photoshopped "only" to bring clarity.

UPDATE: III - Heh, via Rush's show today: "I gotta note from a friend here. "Hey, Rush, it's true. The Democrats in the media have made the remarkable newsworthy discovery, thanks to Reuters photographers, that the president does indeed urinate. Presumably he's in favor of urination. The real question, though, is where Hillary stands on the subject. Are we really to think that she would deal with such an important topic sitting down?"

hmmmmm, good question!
