Seeing is not always believing. Almost every image you and I encounter everyday whether it be via the news, advertisement, or entertainment source is purposefully used to evoke some sort of reaction. Although we like to believe our trusted sources use authentic imagery to achieve these responses from us, unfortunately the practice of photo manipulation has been going on about as long as photography has. The following are just a few examples of some of the more ridiculous manipulations designed to "trick" you into believing something else is going on.

Below is a video that's sparked controversy and gotten my attention. The video for the most park speaks for itself, but in a nutshell; a father finds out his daughter is posting some spiteful comments towards him and his wife. Apparently this had been a chronic issue with the girl so he decides to offer punishment for the 2012 social network era: Makes a video scolding her before he loads eight hollow-point rounds into her laptop and posts it on her facebook wall. Now of course the video has received millions of hits and garnered massive media attention. Some are calling him a hero, some are saying he's a child abuser. You can spin it either way. I call him creative. Maybe he should start a blog.
