AP flips Knievel photo

    Not sure why this happened, but it could potentially be embarrassing for papers who ran the old photo....

    Today on the wire was a story about Sheldon Saltman, the guy Evel Knievel beat with a baseball bat, saying he was going after Knievel's estate.
    Well anyway it looks like the photo with the story was flipped by someone; AP just ran a correction photo showing his right arm injured when it was really his left -- saying it got switched.

    Why would someone at the AP flip it?

    Could have been scanned in backward from a negative. That stuff used to happen all the time.

    I did it all the time. It was very easy to do. Especially on deadline.
