MUCH of the last week, Twitter and Facebook overflowed with a screenshot of Fox News at its worst, misspelling Toulouse as 'Toolooz', placing France in Turkey, misnaming its president and suggesting a 'Crazy Buddhist' was responsible for a week's terrible killings; 'President' Claude Guéant had apologised to the 'Asian' community.

The only problem is, the screen-shot is photoshopped; the actual image of anchor Shannon Bream (here, before and after alteration) dates from a year ago, 5th June 2011; but it was too good not to be true.
