News researchers praised, photogs in trouble

There's a very nice article in American Journalism Review about the value of news researchers: Beyond the Byline. I've mentioned several other recent tributes to researchers; seems to be a trend.

On the other hand, what's going on with news photographers? One was fired in Charlotte for adjusting the color of the sky on a fire photo. More on Visual Editors blog.
In Miami, however, after New Times' Chuck Strouse revealed El Nuevo Herald had used a photomontage to illustrate what they claimed was lack of interest by Cuban police in enforcing anti-prostitution laws, nothing has happened, aside from an apology from the newspaper for not identifying it as a photomontage.
