Guardian corrects: Bradley Manning didn’t take Ellen’s Oscar selfie

The Guardian

Ellen DeGeneres’ “Oscar selfie” is now the most retweeted photo ever. But that bit of history wasn’t apparently enough for The Guardian, which appended this somewhat amazing correction: to some of its Academy Awards coverage:

This article was amended on 3 March 2014. The original stated that Bradley Manning took Ellen’s selfie. In fact, it was Bradley Cooper. This has been corrected.

    Well, I don’t think Bradley Cooper shot it either. When’s a selfie not a selfie? The original tweet showed a bit of the camera he was holding, which leads me to believe it was actually shot by a photographer standing in front of the group. Also, notice nobody’s eyes are looking in the lens? They are all looking at the phone, not at the camera that actually shot the photo.
