How National Geographic Catches Lies

Over at the Poynter Institute, Craig Silverman has a post up about how the National Geographic catches faked photos in its contests.

(Dan) Westergren (Senior Picture Editor at NatGeo’s Traveler magazine) says one fundamental question judges ask of every entry is, “Does this picture show what it felt like to be there at that moment, to combine the human elements with the place?”

Good standard to live by.
