    It is worthy of discussion in the sense some blog outfit would go the extent of claiming "Faking.."

    Interestingly, it is all about one source who had proclaimed the photo to be "fake".

    I looked at a few articles (everything regurgitating the same). It was interesting to glance through the comments though.

    This world press photo has got more exposure (and hence the real tragedy depicted by the photo) as a result of this.

    No worries, Jono.

    My exclamation was directed against that dubious site and that totally fabricated article.

    I did't saw such kind of photos before , so it is a good thing for me and some of these photos are really very amazing if we saw these in a different angle.
