Condi As No One Has Ever Seen Her

Florida Cracker has the story of the Condi photo before Photoshopping and after as printed in USA Today. I thought the triangular pupils in the USA Today version were really cool:

Maybe not quite realistic, but cool.

The Anchoress mourns the noble art of journalism.

Must be the Were/Vampire look in honor of Halloween.kewl
Anchoress wrote on the matter. I like her take- it is childish behavior.
Just barely visited the USA Today link and I belive they have replaced the doctored photo with the original. Have another look.
Stan, they have, and they have published an "explanation":
The editor's note:
Editor's note: The photo of Condoleezza Rice that originally accompanied this story was altered in a manner that did not meet USA TODAY's editorial standards. The photo has been replaced by a properly adjusted copy. Photos published online are routinely cropped for size and adjusted for brightness and sharpness to optimize their appearance. In this case, after sharpening the photo for clarity, the editor brightened a portion of Rice's face, giving her eyes an unnatural appearance. This resulted in a distortion of the original not in keeping with our editorial standards.

And who believes that? Photoshop produces triangular pupils? Sure. Whatever you say.
