BP Badly Photoshops Command Center, Denies Responsibility
After the news spread across the Web like oil across the Gulf, BP finally (sort of) addressed the situation. The Washington Post reported yesterday:
Although BP has taken down the doctored photo, Dean has not acknowledged its problematic 2001 date, nor has he agreed to post a high-res copy of the "original unaltered version. There's also the slight problem of this other doctored promotional photo. [From: AmericaBlog and Washington Post]Scott Dean, a spokesman for BP, said that there was nothing sinister in the photo alteration and provided the original unaltered version. He said that a photographer working for the company had inserted three images in spots where the video screens were blank.
