The Daily News seems to have digitally altered a photograph of someone wounded during the explosions at the Boston Marathon Monday. A wound on the person’s leg disappeared in the version of the photo the Daily News ran.

That’s not great, but the quote a Daily News spokesperson gave Capital’s Joe Pompeo is arguably even worse: “The Daily News does not comment on its editorial decision-making.” That’s a curious stance for an organization that purports to hold others responsible for their actions.
