Photoshopped terror

Am I seeing things, or do the eyes of University of Texas gunman, "Colton J. Tooley" look identical to those of Mohammad Atta:

Way back when I had my own computer account I kept an impressive collection of obvious examples of media fakery like this. Here's one I'm particularly found of:

Suffice to say, trust me on this, the media (and by that I mean big name media like TIME and Newsweek) have been known to totally make up stories, photoshop entire fake scenes and use staged photos on their covers for use in propaganda. Remember Jessica Lynch? Now, look at these compared photos of Osama bin Laden:

The reality, folks, is that Osama bin Laden is dead. Don't you think that if he were alive we would have found him by now, if that were (as George W. Bush said) the reason we went into Afghanistan in the first place? How many billions of dollars have we spent trying to catch this guy? Couldn't someone have just put a price on his head and be done with it? No, because the whole thing is fake, there's a lot of money for some pretty shady businesses (including drug traffickers) to make over that nasty little quagmire. But now we're hearing from "Osama" again.

Americans -- citizens of all nations -- please don't assume that just because something's in the mainstream news, that makes it true.
