Stupid? Or Venal?
This morning’s contestant on America’s hottest new reality quiz show is Jack Cashill of WorldNetDaily, who has a pressing question: Who doctored the Barack Obama bench photo?
The bench is real. The grandparents are real. The wall behind them is real. Barack Obama is not. He has been conspicuously photoshopped in. Who did this and why remains as much a mystery as Obama’s extended stay in New York.
Actually, Barack Obama has been conspicuously photoshopped out, although, as Media Matters observes, the mouse-jockey forgot to remove his knee:
So, America, it’s your call: Is Jack Cashill stupid for mistaking the fake for the original, or is he venal for publicizing an obviously doctored photo?
Please note, you can’t answer both. Although if you guessed that the mouse-jockey was actually pranking Jack Cashill, proceed to the bonus round.
