The Assassination Begins Early

Within days of the media speculation surrounding Condoleezza Rice's visit to her home town the good old MSM has started painting her as a villian. I look forward to the pics with her teeth extended and sharpened.

Check this out. (ex Michelle Malkin)

Check out the photo of Condoleezza Rice that was published by USA Today last week:

Beelzebub Condi

Notice anything peculiar about her eyes?

No, Condi isn't possessed; the photo was manipulated.

This news comes courtesy of From The Pen, which found a pre-doctored version of the Associated Press photo on Yahoo! EspaƱa:

Beautiful Condi

UPDATE: More here.

Weak, seriously weak. Is that really the best they could manage? Watch for claims that they were just enhancing it for clarity, like that authentic Bush "toilet" memo.

chefen, people, including long time photoshop users, have tried to reproduce the effects and couldn't. And it's not the first time.

I think the company who put up this photograph should give us the simple steps how to create this effect. If it's just a single filter, you have a point. But it's only her eyes, for example her ear rings don't have more contrast, the guy behind her is still as vague, etc.

Visit Michelle Malkin for many more links.

The MSM just consists of racist bastards. They couldn't imagine the blacks in Katrina doing anything else than looting, raping and killing, and now Condi is turned into some kind of daemon.

Berend I think you got the wrong end of my comment, but I maybe didn't write it very well. I agree with you, even a passing glance at the changes show what you say. But it ain't racist if she is a Republican... race is trumped by party you know.

USA Today has retracted. I have screen grab here http://whaleoil.blogspot.com/2005/10/bullshit-alert.html

Berend gets the end of everything wrong.

Hilary Clinton has been having her character assasinated for longer than Codi, yet not a peep out of you lot. A book came out some time ago that was less than flattering. People are scared of these women.

roger, the book about Hillary was discussed, a bit, but dismissed and after that ignored. No one is using it as an argument against Hillary, doesn't that say enough?

Hilary doesn't need any help from right wingers. She has completely besmirched her character by staying married to such a puff ball ex president who, if the truth be known, likely still doesn't know when to keep his pecker in his pocket.

It is often said that Bill and Hilary lead very active sex lives, though not often with each other.

Remember the Port Arthur mass murder a few years ago? Didnt a newspaper or TV news show augment a photo of him similar to what they have done to Condi above? They took a photo of the guy standing straight, with a serious look on his face, and whitened the eyes to make him look insane.

It was pathetic, but the guy was a murderer so I didnt really give a shit. But this is something else!

Remember the Simpsons episode in which Side-Show Bob was running for mayor? They had a TV debate and when the camera went on Quinby the producers digitally gave him devil horns and added flames in the background. I am sure Matt Groening thought he was being ironic rather than prophetic.

This all adds to the curiosity of the Anton Dixon photos. Maybe they were doctored too? At least tell me the haircut was.

It makes her look like one of the Goa'uld off Stargate.

I've put an examination of the difference between the two photos here:

Unfortunately I don't have proper remote sensing software, if I did we could identify exactly what USA Today changed.

She has also definitely had botox so in effect is manipulating her own look.

Go to the mirror now and make that face and see if you can do it without lines on your forehead!
