Pho­to­blogs tell the real story.

IN AN era where we have rea­son to be scep­ti­cal about the ac­cu­racy and hon­esty of global and main­stream news providers, it still rings true that pho­tos don’t lie.

And if a photo tells a thou­sand words, there’s a lot of in­for­ma­tion on­line in the new breed of news ser­vice pho­to­blogs.

An in­creas­ing num­ber of news­pa­pers are launch­ing their own pho­to­blogs both on their own web­sites and on pho­to­blog so­cial net­work, Tum­blr.

With daily up­dates be­ing up­loaded by photo ed­i­tors and pho­to­jour­nal­ists, it’s a vis­ual way to seek your up- to- date news.

The daily dose of pho­to­graphic in­spi­ra­tion can help you stay up to date with cur­rent news events hap­pen­ing around the world, with­out all the spin.

The New York Times has launched into the Tum­blr so­cial sphere with a new and whim­si­cal pho­to­blog con­nect­ing with readers who like a dose of in­trigue with their in­side story.

The Lively Morgue is the new blog, host­ing black and white news images from the depths of the NY Times photo fil­ing cab­i­nets.

The pa­per’s phys­i­cal photo morgue, as it’s la­belled, is home to mil­lions of pic­tures from the news­pa­per’s his­tory.
