Time magazine fakes Reagan’s tear

How far can you take Photoshop without offending the masses, and denting the credibility of your newsmagazine? Time magazine found out this week, with a fake tear running down the face of a much-admired, two-term, dead president Ronald Reagan.

The photo and story entitled “How the right went wrong” was obviously meant to be provocative. I am quite sure the editor of the day knew what he was doing. Feigning surprise at the backlash of defacing the Teflon President, and the Great Communicator, just seems so fake in itself. Own up, apologize and move on.
