Did bionic pick up on the photo shop or simply 'find' the original photo's provided by Iran?

Do you really expect any of the MSM players to acknowledge new media -- whomever within that was first -- in any significant fashion? Esp. if it was the person who made so many look so foolish in regards Rathergate?

That says it was posted 1 day ago which would be Thursday. Charles broke this on Wednesday. You are mistaken.

NPR did mention LGF in its story on the pictures, and even omitted the usual "right-wing" sobriquet in referencing it. BUT, after acknowledging LGF had it first, virtually the entire story was about how the NYT responded to the fakes, including a breathless description of a photo-editor rushing into the publisher's office waving the photo and saying it was a fake.

These folks love to fawn over each other so much, they don't let simple facts get in the way.
