TIME: The fake but accurate magazine

Sunday, 24 June, 2018

Here’s the explainer: “The original version of this story misstated what happened to the girl in the photo after she taken from the scene. The girl was not carried away screaming by U.S. Border Patrol agents; her mother picked her up and the two were taken away together.”

That’s the correction TIME Magazine added to this week’s controversial anti-Trump cover story:

Headline: “‘All I Wanted to Do Was Pick Her Up.’ How a Photographer at the U.S.-Mexico Border Made an Image America Could Not Ignore”

Sub-head: “‘This one was tough for me. As soon as it was over, they were put into a van. I had to stop and take deep breaths,” Getty photographer John Moore said'”

It should be a big story when TIME Photoshops, misleads and the apologizes, but journalism isn’t what it used to be and the TIME has adopted a new low standard: fake but accurate.
