AFP/Getty Images get in on the act

Dog of Flanders has another great example of dodgy goings on. Two copies of exactly the same picture at Getty Images - one caption says it's incoming Israeli rockets falling on Tyre, the other that it’s a Katyusha rocket being fired from Tyre. Priceless.

"Tyre, LEBANON: Katyusha rockets are fired from the outskirts of the southern Lebanese port city of Tyre into Israel, 06 August 2006. Israel's army will carry on fighting Hezbollah in southern Lebanon until two soldiers, whose capture sparked the conflict last month, are returned, its ambassador to Washington said today. EDS NOTE: CORRECTING DIRECTION OF SHELLING."

Well, 71595583 claims to be corrected, but 71595544 remains present in the database.

Why have a *duplicate* entry for a correction?

Doesn't it make more sense to correct the *original*?

She must have packed a big suitcase for all of her costume changes. I wonder which house she retrieved them from!

Looks like the same location, but different photo angles. One is more close up. Not the building are the same in relation to the launch site. They also appears to have been taken milliseconds apart. Makes you wonder how two photographers were in the same location at the same time looking the same direction. Almost like they were told where the rockets were coming from.

By the way ... altillery rockets only burn propellant for the beginning of of their trip; the end of the flight is powered by gravity and inertia. There would be no flames (or much smoke for that matter), to identify the projectiles' flight, if this was the 'terminal-phase' of an attack. It doesn't matter if it is the same photo or not, this is BS journalism.
