More doctored BP photos surface

bp4 Washington DC, July 23 (THAINDIAN NEWS) BP has done it again. The company has admitted to editing pictures of its clean up efforts in the Gulf which were publicly released.

The oil company has now released the original pictures to replace the altered ones. The edited photos showed workers critically examining clean up efforts in front of some television screens after the damaging oil spill. Three of those screens were edited to show underwater images of clean up activities.

In another picture, empty screens in a control room were changed to show underwater water. Another fake picture showed an interior helicopter image that was changed to appear as if the helicopter was in the air, but the editor was clearly stupid as he forgot to edit a control tower that appeared in the photo, which was around the location where the helicopter was placed on the ground. Apart from that, if the photograph is zoomed then anybody can clearly see that the gauges on the dashboard of the helicopter show that it is sitting pretty on the ground.

BP has blamed the poor editions on its altered images on a hired photographer.

The Whitehouse has ridiculed those images saying they were irresponsible and stupid through statements made by spokesperson Robert Gibbs.
