    The man was in a meeting at the U.N. Maybe he didn't just want to hop up and run out.

    The joke is on you ASLANSPAL. Reuters has acknowledged that it was photoshopped. Nice try though.

    While certainly not a fan, I seriously doubted that he would write this, or that he would allow someone to get a picture of him writing it.

    This seemed a little "over the top," much like the post above mine.

    Regards to you, ASLANSPAL,

    Medical point - technically, the anatomical "word" is not prostrate, which means lying face downwards. :cool:

    And you have the link to Reuters refutation?

    Snopes lists it as "undetermined" (linkie).

    I don't see what the big deal is anyway, if it is authentic. We all gotta go sometimes.

    Snopes probably doesn't read the Drudge Report.

    You'll have to ask APAL what the big deal is. :rolleyes:

    "Earlier today, Gary Hershorn, a picture editor for Reuters admitted that he was responsible for zooming in on the note and used photoshop to enhance the text of the message and he decided to transmit the photo."

    I still don't get the point of this. Are we shocked that President Bush has to use the toilet? Or that he would ask someone if this was a good time to go?

    Are you kidding? There are some who think it's offensive to believe that Jesus would have had to use the toilet (or privvy, or whatever they were called back then).

    Bill O'Reilly just said that Reuters should be ashamed of itself.

    Bill O'Reilly also said Matt Drudge was a threat to democracy.

    I'm glad I don't watch him. He could have/should have spent the time reporting something that actually mattered.

    First-class windbag. Coming in after the photo's been debunked for days, and jumping on a very safe bandwagon. [​IMG]

    I think the photo-shopped pic is very funny.

    The photo has not been debunked - it was apparently enhanced, not changed or created, to make the writing clearer.

    But the whole thing is silly.

    I will not comment on the merit of this "story" since there is no merrit to it at all. However I will say that the very fact this even reached ONE news source shows how silly our "news" agencies really are.
