"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"


The french magazine Paris Match apparently published a photoshopped picture of president Sarkozy on vacation in New Hampshire earlier this month.
The picture, taken by Reuters News Agency, was modified to appear in Match*s edition of 9th August. Another magazine, L*Express, published the original and the photoshopped version of said picture.
One can clearly see that someone took away the ugly fat squirting out of the presidential short!
Maybe the Elysée is trying to hide the fact that Sarko is getting a bit rounder these days...

Not since the good old days of comrade Stalin has retouching pictures been so popular.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
