‘Forget the fake photos: Just use these’

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Piers Morgan may have been sacked for printing some dodgy photographs in The Mirror, but it would seem that the problem hasn’t been solved just yet:

A Sunday Mirror article claimed to show Hoare “on the loose” on a UK seafront, but used pictures of the wrong man.

That’s a bit of an oopsie. I just wish the wrong guy had been someone like Tony Blair. Then this funny but distressing and distubing story would just become hilarious.
