Reuters Admits Media Under Hezbollah Direction

Granted, not in so many words, but:

There was no sign of Hizbollah guerrillas as the Lebanese troops moved south. Even unarmed members of the group seen on previous days riding around on scooters and giving instructions to journalists and residents in the south had disappeared.
If two Reuters reporters, Yara Bayoumy and Lin Noueihed, are willing to admit that Hezbollah gives instructions to journalists, isn't it about time that Reuters copped to more than passing off poorly photoshopped pics as legit?

Thanks to Kerry for catching this---a big slap on my forehead for missing it.
