The Camera Frequently Lies?

Let's say that you're a news photographer, and you're of the opinion that Iraqis shouldn't vote tomorrow. And let's say that you want to do whatever you can to frighten them away from the polling places.

Wouldn't it be great to get some scary pictures of a car bomb going off outside of a polling place as a warning to the citizens about what might happen to them should they exercise their newly won freedom to vote?

But as a news photographer, how would you make sure that you're near a car bomb when it goes off so you can capture the scary explosion on film?

How, indeed?

Curiouser and curiouser.

(Hat tip: My View of the World.)

The question is not whether the camera lies. It does. The question is how frequently the camera lies.
