April 1 may forever haunt Colin Crawford, Los Angeles Times Director of Photography, and Brian Walski, a staff photographer covering the war in Iraq for the paper.
That was the day Walski was fired, after it was revealed that a photo he submitted on Sunday was actually a composite of two images he had captured.
The photo was shared primarily with other Tribune properties via Newscom, the company’s internal picture distribution service. Both the Hartford Courant and The Chicago Tribune used the photograph prominently on Monday.
