With Reuters admitting that their photo of Beirut on fire had been (very badly) faked, a lot of people are still wanting to talk about it. One thing that they’re fighting over is what to call it. “Reutersgate” is the early favorite, but a LOT of people — including myself — are pretty much “gated” out. It’s been 30 years since the original Watergate, people, and most of the principles are dead. Time to let it go, folks — yes, even you at the Washington Post.
So what do we call it? I’m leaning towards “Blowing Smoke” or “Up In Smoke” myself. But I’m sure you folks can do better than that. Have at it!
