Seems the media-ethicists at Radar Online are confused by it; they feel the magazine made insufficiently clear that the single tear rolling down Reagan’s face — an homage, we presume, to the don’t-litter Native American of TV-commercial fame — was added to the Gipper’s photo. It’s a fair complaint. And so to those who are confused, we’ll make it explicit: The tear was added. Also to clarify in case you’re further flummoxed: Colin Farrell was not actually photographed smoking in bed in his boxers while a blonde dozed behind him, Tom Cruise was not actually punctured with arrows while wearing briefs and white button-down, and George W. Bush did not actually bestow the Medal of Honor on Paris Hilton. But the storm clouds over Cheney’s head last week? Totally real.
