James Dean photo was altered in error
A picture of James Dean that ran in Friday’s Weekend Section was mistakenly digitally altered.
"Because of the way the picture was placed on the page, we felt it gave too much emphasis to Dean’s cigarette. We’re not in the business of promoting tobacco usage. So we decided to put in a new picture," News Managing Editor Rick Hall said.
But due to a miscommunication, the picture was instead digitally altered to eliminate the cigarette. "That simply should not have happened," Hall said. "We make no apology for downplaying tobacco usage, but digitally altering a photo is against the paper’s ethics policy. We have taken steps to ensure that it won’t happen again."
