Wing Nut, er, WorldNet Daily descends from buffoonish spin into fakery

This stunt, exposed by Media Matters, reminds Aksarbent of the time Weekly World News published a picture of a space alien exiting Air Force One next to Reagan (no jokes, please) next to a picture without the space alien and claimed that the picture without the space alien was retouched by the CIA. Despite the best efforts of World Net Daily, Aksarbent misses the Weekly World News.
     Aksarbent would provide the link to the WNDaily web site, but the killjoys there have already removed the incriminating pictorial evidence of their stupidity in employing columnist Cashill, so why should we bother?

Cashill writes: "The bench is real. The grandparents are real. The wall behind them is real. Barack Obama is not. He has been conspicuously photoshopped in. Who did this and why remains as much a mystery as Obama's extended stay in New York." He embeds a YouTube video that claims to have uncovered the "real" photo, seen below, in which Obama is nowhere to be seen:

Actually, to say Obama is "nowhere to be seen" isn't quite accurate, given that the young future president's right knee is still somehow visible in the "real" photo.
