It may be gone by the time you read this, but look carefully at this page from Aljazeera.com’s English-language Web site. In the story about the “Three Sudan resolutions to be discussed by [Security Council],” the picture of the council in action includes a diplomat with his laptop open ... and a picture of breasts displayed on the screen. Quite obviously fake. But quite obvious.
So how did it make it through? Why is it still up? What are we to conclude?
The blogosphere and wider Internet are silent on the topic so far, although the site itself has several people commenting on the picture, most without much insight. (Sample: “Hooray for knockers.”)
