Faked Pictures of Pigeons

Photographer sacked over fake picture

A newspaper photographer has been fired for doctoring his award-winning picture, the Website of the Shanghai-based Xinmin Evening News reported yesterday.

Zhang Liang from the Harbin Daily submitted the picture “Over 800 pigeons at a square take the bird flu vaccine” to the China International Press Photo Contest in 2005 and came away with a gold award.

You’d think after all the uproar over the reuters photographer that faked pictures, that even the Chinese media would know better.
