Do we need to label photo retouched portraits?

Every year the discussion about labeling retouched photos of women (mostly women) in media arises. It my eyes the whole discussion misses the point in the sense that it assumes that "common people" are too stupid to recognize that the photos on the covers are fake. Especially for celebrities I cannot see the danger of highly retouched photos - why? Simply because while on one side the cover photos of magazine show highly stylized versions of persons who will be thrown under the bus by the yellow press showing shocking "paparazzi" photos where we can see them un-retouched.

Interestingly enough the audience for both photos is the same. So I don't really see the danger.

On the other side I hear more often how someone is surprised to see that a celebrity actually looks like on TV when they see them on the street ... doesn't that tell you that we "know" what is real in what not?
