Photo alteration has sparked some wide debates over the years, especially in magazines meant as news sources. This article talks about Times wanting to add fat to a model's picture because the editors believed she was too thin. I see two problems here. One, she became that thin because YOU made her feel she had to in order to get a spot on your magazine cover and others, as I'm sure she models consistently. Two, take pictures of who you want to take pictures of. If you don't want a skinny model on your cover because you don't want readers to think you're advocating the eat-practically-nothing diet, then don't hire models who struggle with those restrictions in their daily life. It's hypocritical to support an industry, but then make yourselves look like you're not. Ridiculous.
