Michele Malkin comes up with a doozy on the MoveOn fake American soldiers lonely Thanksgiving Day dinner fraud. She shows side-by-side photos (how does she do that?) of MoveOn faking their own fakes. Does a fake of a fake, that is to say, a faked fake, make it all genuine? I don't think so. In an apparent attempt to salvage their discredited anti-war advertisement, MoveOn added pants to the British soldier originally photographed dining in his shorts. So now there are two versions of the photo, one in the filmed advertisement (British hairy legs showing) and another on MoveOn's website (British hairy legs covered).
What makes this such a lame attempt to fool all of the people all of the time is that it appears that MoveOn photoshopped into the original photo British camouflage fatigues on the soldier. You would think that if they were going to cheat that they would go all the way and re-paint the camouflage on all the British soldiers in the photo with American camouflage colors and patterns and then blame it all on bad lighting or solar flares or global warming or penguins marching backwards or something like that.
The MoveOn people are reading too much Mary Mapes. MorOn.org?
