In the case of the bald eagle photo from Sunday, the process broke down. The production folks are trying to find out how and why.

If a photographer deliberately manipulated a photo in that way, our ethics policy would require severe discipline, perhaps even dismissal. But circumstances in the production department are different and it may really have been a technical error/Steve Smith, News Is A Conversation. More here
