Now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine:
First, a freelance photographer was fired by Reuters news service for adding more smoke to a picture of a Beirut bombing.
Now, The New York Times has issued a correction for a photo on its Web site, which the paper originally described as a Lebanese "body" being pulled from the rubble after an Israeli attack.
Astute readers pointed out the so-called "body" was very much alive in other pictures from the scene.
The Times now says the man "was injured during the rescue effort — not during the initial attack — and was not killed."
The European Union says it's legal for businesses to discriminate against smokers.
An EU parliament member raised the issue after constituents complained that an Irish company seeking new employees told smokers not to bother applying for the jobs.
Europe's employment commission says the company is within its rights, ruling that only age, disability, religion and sexual orientation are protected under Europe's anti-discrimination laws.
A California candidate for Lieutenant Governor says he'll stop using a fundraising letter from Mel Gibson after the actor's drunken, anti-Semitic remarks.
Republican Tom McClintock has been sending a three-page letter from Gibson to potential donors touting McClintock's willingness to take a stand for his principles — even when they're not politically correct.
But now a spokesman says McClintock has been "disillusioned" by Mel Gibson's comments.
