Indeed: http://zombietime.com/reuters_photo_fraud/

Though it seems that the photos were faked by low-level partisans on the ground, not by high-on decree from Reuters itself.

Reuters isn't significantly better or worse than anyone else, in the scheme of things, but it's a bad idea to have too much faith in any news outlet, regardless of how sophisticated it may currently make you sound when you brag about how you get all your news from Al Jazeera. (Personally I get all my news from Taiwanese animations.)

Serious wow at Lebanon war photo fraud. That is just appalling.
