USA Today photoshops Condi to make her look demonic

Check it out. The eyes are photoshopped.

So much for ethics in journalism. It is obviously doctored and Michelle Malkin proves it.

Here's the letter I sent to USA Today in response:
Date: Wed, 26 Oct 2005 09:44:41 -0700 (PDT)
From: "DW"
Subject: Ethics in journalism or lack thereof
To: rcurtis@usatoday.com
CC: editor@usatoday.com

Dear Richard,

Why did you photoshop a picture of Condi Rice to make
her look satanic?
The USA Today article with the picture I'm looking at
is at
http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2005-10-19-rice-congress_x.htm

You must think your readers are complete morons not to
notice this, and the obvious intent.

Get a real job. My daughter can photoshop better than you,
and she's in gradeschool. Tell me why I should believe
anything you people publish.

Cheers,
D. W.

The 'editor' actually sent a return email saying the letter would be considered for the 'letters to the editor' section. *LAUGH*

UPDATE: Yay! Nasty letters do work! USA Today has replaced the offending photo with the non-photoshopped version.

Haha, that's fantastic in more than one way. Although i'm far from a fervent USA Today reader, i still find it hard to believe they would resort to such subversive methods. Cheers to you.
