Do you think that it is unethical for the media to digitally alter images within the news?

Asked by gearedtolaugh (304 points ) February 6th, 2012

No altering photos is not ethical, especially within the news which is supposed to be the truth. How is a digitally altered photo “the truth”? On the news and related public media, most people want to read the truth and not hear gossip. If somebody were to see a picture that was altered, the first thing they are going to do is tell somebody else about it, and they’ll tell somebody else, and so on. The rumors about that certain photo would soon be all around the world, even if the photo was altered. Opinions?
