For the first issue of their new redesign, Time magazine has a cover photo of Ronald Reagan with a tear streaming down his face. Here's how the table of contents describes the image: "Photograph by David Hume Kennerly. Tear by Tim O'Brien."

How many people will believe that the tear is real, rather than a fabricated image? Is this a dishonest use of the image by Time?

More importantly, shouldn't the magazine acknowledge that it ripped off the idea from Iron Eyes Cody, the "crying Indian" from those 70's era PSAs on pollution?
