Oh, and also, the 1991 Russia photo is Photoshopped

Our reader squashed threw this in a reply to that fake Russia crowd post, confirming that the picture is in fact Photoshopped:

Looked at the big version of the photo myself and confirmed this using pixel matching. Will send a note to Alan Taylor of the Atlantic about this photo. EDIT: Here’s the original photo on AP.

To complement the last post, here’s the scale of the protests shown in photographic form. The main one is from USA Today, though uncredited. The other three are from AP. Compare those with this photo. Don’t get us wrong. This is in fact a big deal for Russia, which for the first time in years is rising up against Vladimir Putin. But let’s get the scale right first.
