Fox News DeTouched…

Media Matters (a non-profit site dedicated to “documenting conservative misinformation”) reported that Fox News recently featured photos of two New York Times reporters that appeared to have been digitally altered — “the journalists’ teeth had been yellowed, their facial features exaggerated, and portions of Reddicliffe’s hair moved further back on his head”.
In celebration of all the retouch artistry going in the “news” I decided to make a special Fox News edition of my DeTouch project (originally intended to highlight alterations made in model photographs). The brighter the pixel value the more the image has been altered. View resulting images below and the interactive online application here:

The original DeTouch website can be viewed at detouch.org
The applet was built in Processing, and the source code is here.
