Shock: NYT Blog Claims Credit For Fauxtography Story They Didn't Break

I'm not sure who exposed it, or how much credit Brian Ledbetter of SnappedShot should have (he was filling my email box), or LAHawk, but I can see that Charles Johnson exposed the picture as a photoshop at 9:00 PM Eastern last night while the NYT filed the same story at 9:00 AM this morning.

Whether CJ deserves all the credit, I don't know. I do know the NYT deserves little of it, and ought to stop claiming otherwise.

Thanks to CJ. No, a different CJ.
