Current consensus on retouching ethics

Hi Retouch Pro community,

I was wondering what the current take on issues of retouching and journalism were. I had felt like writing a bit on my blog about this issue of a photographer basically losing his entire practice because he removed details out of a photo.

I firmly believe that if AP/Magnum/Reuters says you cannot retouch anything you should follow those guidelines.

What happens if a client came to you with such a job, something that you knew was in this grey area of "off-limits" images.

please talk about it, its a touchy subject because its fundamentally what we all do for a living. There's an aspect of it that requires an ethical guidebook.

Thanks for any responses
