ABC News' Nightline on Monday was devoted to the morphed child porn law and challenges to it. David Horowitz was kind enough to find a link to the transcript:

The law, of course, is more complex than my description above suggests and covers the creation, distribution and even the possession of far more than just Photoshop-twiddled images. Background:

Speaking of news programs devoted to these issues, PBS's Frontline last night covered hackers (both malicious and otherwise). During the portion of the show devoted to terrorism, complete with footage of recent mideast bomb attack on a U.S. Navy ship, DoD special agent Jim Christy warned that:

"anonymity is built into the process"
"you can do it remotely and... have the same effect"
