Doctored Katie Couric photo
The photo on the right isn't exactly what it appears to be--nor, with one exception, are the other images that follow in this photo gallery. The doctored images were manipulated beyond straightforward cropping of edges or lightening shaded areas. Often they have a key element inserted or deleted.
An image of Katie Couric, originally released in May 2006 by CBS, was slimmed down for reuse.
The left photo is the official first-pic-of-Katie released by CBS, parent company of CNET publisher CBS Interactive. (TVNewser posted it in May 2006.) The doctored photo on the right appears in the September issue of Watch magazine, which is owned by CBS, according to Mediabistro.com, which first reported on the alteration.
