Photo ethics?

Alberto sent me this link about a debate regarding the ethics of manipulating photo images with photoshop or other means. The article by Pedro Meyer in Mexico takes issue with the rescinding of a photo award given by the North Carolina Press Photographers Association in the United States to Patrick Schneider. It places photojournalism within the context of corporate news gathering. Very intriguing because the argument gets away from the the approach that tries to simply apply some sort of rules to a text. This type of ethics belongs to a few "erudites" who pretend to be in control of some authoritative formal aesthetic. The argument of Meyer brings in the systemic failures of corporate news gathering within which photo-journalists work.
