The Deception Of Beauty Magazines

The Deception Of Beauty Magazines
This is a before-Photoshopping image of the "ugly" Faith Hill

While I was at a party, I recently opined, in my highly knowledgeable and indignant voice, that no image appears in any medium anymore without being Photoshopped in some way.

Jezebel reaffirms my pronouncement:

"The crazy thing about the Faith Hill Redbook cover is not that it was Photoshopped – it’s that this is the standard amount of digital altering that goes into a cover."

If this type of manipulation is so common, is it even considered deceptive? Is it only the old people who look at these magazine covers and complain about media manipulation, while the young people say: "Of course they’re not real. What, you think video games are real, too?"
