    You just don’t get it. Cartoons can do anything – make themselves fat, slim, taller. What do you have to see, her legs spin in place?

    If I were a major news network, I would be negotiating with Cronkite for digital rights to use an artificial representation of him. It would easily be worth $100M.

    This picture is just a distraction from the Ned Lamont primary win.

    For those slow on the uptake, the above article, while hilarious, is satire.

    Yeah, but DaveBo, Michelle linked her article on how dishonest leftists are about their Code Pink hunger strikes to the actual Hot Air piece. Now *that’s* pure satire.

    You just don’t get it, do you, John? The potential Photoshopping of a picture of Katie Couric is just another way for the terrorists to destroy America. You laugh about it because you want the terrorists to win.

    CBS Comm. Dept. Slimmed Couric Down
    > Update: 11:43pm: Check out this “Couric morph…”

    Following up on this: “CBS blames the ‘editorial staff’ of a promotional magazine for doctoring a photo to dramatically slim Katie Couric down, but those editors are in fact the network’s PR staff,” Broadcasting & Cable says.
    A CBS spokesman said “the editorial staff of Watch magazine retouched the photo without the knowledge of Katie Couric or CBS news management.” But the staff consists of “CBS’ own communications department,” John Higgins notes. (Executive VP of communications Gil Schwartz is listed as editor in chief.)

    “Through a spokesman, Couric says that she prefers the original photo ‘because there’s more of me to love…'”

    What’s more interesting (to me, at least) is that while HotAir is going through a fact-checking is it/isn’t it exercise, I found the direct explanation from CBS by simply clicking back through the link cited by HotAir, which went to StickyNotes, which went to TVNewser, which had the confirmation that the image was photoshopped by Watch magazine, which, per the link at TVNewser, is owned by CBS

    So there’s no question that the image was altered.

    Which then triggers my ‘Okay, so what?’ response. I don’t particularly care that CBS is making their people look better through digital manipulation in their advertising.

    I’m a bit surprised that the question of whether the image was or wasn’t photoshopped lingered for so long.

    This is clearly proof that Bill Clinton was responsible for 9/11!

    Never trust a fat chick. I want my 3 day old breaking news stories about missing White Girls delivered by somebody I can trust. Somebody with *gravitas*.

    Off topic, but I found this kind of amusing. I’m sure we’ll all hear about this for awhile.
