Eric:

I agree except that the TV news is just so much fodder and only a moron believes otherwise. However a photograph can have a life of its own. It has the possibility of leaving the realm of a newpaper or newsmagazine and essentially becomes a piece of art.

It can be the definitive statement of a war, an era or even a generation. Therefore I think it has a more serious consequence if it is altered.
