When it comes to power, the illusion of health–if not the reality –will serve just as well. Or will it? BBC wrote: “There is fresh speculation about the health of North Korea’s ‘ Dear Leader ‘ Kim Jong-il, amid suggestions that an image of Mr Kim may have been doctored.”
BBC stated, “An analysis by the UK’s Times newspaper highlighted incongruities around the leader’s legs, and the BBC found what look like mismatched pixels…
“In the photo, the shadow cast by Mr Kim’s calves runs in a different direction from the shadow cast by the soldiers on either side of him, the Times pointed out. In addition, a black line running along the stand on which the soldiers are positioned mysteriously vanishes on either side of Mr Kim – suggesting his picture may have been superimposed on to the image.
“Such a suspicion was reinforced when a BBC designer examined a close-up, and discovered apparently mismatched pixels to the right of Mr Kim’s legs.”
Who knew that some countries need better medical care and photo doctoring providers to help maintain a leader’s health?
