Another case of fake news photoshopped for our edification…..
Last month a Seven News story on shares in Melbourne being left as clutter across the city included a photo of a bike left on top of the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton.
“If you’re in Carlton and looking to hire the oBike app would lead you here,” said Kristy Mayr. “But as you can see there’s one big problem…”
But Media Watch has since revealed “Seven ripped the photo off Reddit and it’s a fake. It’s a stock image with the bike photoshopped in.”
It follows TEN News admitting it had faked an anti-marriage equality poster into a bus shelter by one of its own graphics staff members.
