I was pleasantly surprised last night when Rachel Maddow showed a screen shot from LGF to illustrate her piece on the right wing's continual invention of loony conspiracy theories about the President. Here's the LGF article she used: Breitbart Blogger Dan Riehl on the Trail of a Bombshell Obama Photoshop Phraud.

But wait now. Wait just a second. The screenshot Rachel used for her show was ... yes ... shopped.

Yes, they edited the image to remove parts of the byline and moved the header down right next to the article headline. And notice those stray pixels around the LGF logo; a dead giveaway. This is no screenshot -- it's a fraud!

What is Rachel Maddow trying to hide?
