Pelosi photo also changed one woman member's hair

The “official” government photo doctored by Rep.  Nancy Pelosi did more than add four more women who were not actually there.

It moved some people around and changed the appearance of one woman’s hair, according to a joint statement by the National Press Photographers Association and the White House News Photographers Association.

“A further review of the photo shows that not only were the four missing Congresswomen added but that the image was also manipulated to show other Congresswomen who were blocked in the original photo as well as redoing the hair of another,” the two associations said.

“Rather than being a true and `accurate historical record’ as the House Minority Leader stated in her defense of the use of the photo, the hand-out represents an example of the dangers in using a manipulated official photograph, thus undermining the public’s trust in visual images.”
