The End of a "Sacred Career"

A Chinese “news” photographer has admitted to altering a photo of antelope galloping past a new high speed train. The photo, which was circulated widely, had calmed some fears that the new rail line would affect wildlife. After being published around the country, someone noticed some odd lines on an enlarged version in a Beijing subway and started to investigate.

The photographer, Liu Weiquing, said, “I have no reason to continue my sacred career as a newsman. I am not qualified for the job.”
