    well if you look at those images the flags don't seem to be the same? maybe that is just a good spot to take pictures of a crowd in that square?

    I think you're probs reading too much into this Brid.

    It's more likely the BBC re-used an existing photo just to save time and chopped it about a bit to make it fit the page.

    Yep thats exactly what they did.

    But should they be using FAKE images to back up a story? Thats like showing an advert about the dangers of Extacy, and then showing a picture of a dead skag addict with a needle in his arm.

    People take this information, and the images they are presented with as truth. We deserve better than this - especially since we are paying the fuckers to do it!
