Mmmmmmm, editors!

Doncha just love them editors? Always fact checking, and making sure there's no outright falsehoods or lies in their publications?

Or... er, not so much.

News agency Reuters has been forced to admit that footage it released last week purportedly showing Russian submersibles on the seabed of the North Pole actually came from the movie Titanic.

"Fake but accurate", right? Um, nope. I'm laughing my ass off here. After all we bring to light about the Has-Been Media, they continue to prove us correct in our assertions.

UPDATE:

More than half of Americans say US news organizations are politically biased, inaccurate, and don't care about the people they report on, a poll published Thursday showed.


And poll respondents who use the Internet as their main source of news -- roughly one quarter of all Americans -- were even harsher with their criticism, the poll conducted by the Pew Research Center said.


More than two-thirds of the Internet users said they felt that news organizations don't care about the people they report on; 59 percent said their reporting was inaccurate; and 64 percent they were politically biased.


Gee, ya think?
