Fauxtography: Israel Attacks Miami

The colors are so bright on this Adnan Hajj photo, my first thought was that it must be Miami's art deco district that was hit by the Zionist aggressors.

Debunking here.

But seriously, I've talked to Allah about this one and he leans towards calling shenanigans while I'm not as sure. In my book, it's borderline. According to some journos I know, it's SOP and considered acceptable practice to adjust contrast, tint, and color. This one seems a bit over the top, though. PS-and by 'over the top', I mean the manipulation of the photo is over the top, beyond the ethically acceptable. But still not all that bad in comparison to the other Hajj jobs.
