Miami paper manipulated image of police ignoring prostitutes

Snip from the AP story:

The Miami Herald’s Spanish-language sister paper acknowledged Friday that it manipulated two photos to make it appear that two Cuban police officers were ignoring prostitutes gesturing to a tourist.

The image, which appeared June 25 in El Nuevo Herald, combined two previously published pictures — a 1994 photo of the officers by El Nuevo Herald photographer Roberto Koltun, and a 1998 picture of the women and tourist by John Moore, then a photographer for the Associated Press.

Executive Editor Humberto Castello said the newspaper failed to explain to readers that the picture did not depict a real event.
