BP has admitted to more doctored photos of the oil spill and it's actions on doing so are questioned.

More doctored BP photos are surfacing as the company admits wrongdoing. BP has admitted to posting more doctored photos of their oil spill cleanup efforts. It doesn't make sense that BP would want to lead the public using altered photos.

They have since replaced it with the original picture. The photo they edited shows workers sitting in front of television screens, presumably watching cleanup efforts after the companies catastrophic oil spill. Three of the television screens depicted in the photo have had pictures of underwater cleanup efforts superimposed over them using image editing software.

In one photo, blank screens in a control room were edited to display underwater footage, and in one particularly strange example, an interior shot of a stationary helicopter was manipulated to make it appear to be in the air. The editor of the photos forgot to remove the uppermost part of the control tower, on the ship where the helicopter was sitting. BP has blamed a hired photographer for the poor edits.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is using his time wisely by poking fun at the obviously doctored photo of the cleanup efforts. "I think it's genuinely on the stupidity part of the transparency scale," Robert Gibbs said in a statement. "I mean, if you want to show a picture of what the room looks like, just take a picture."
