Sorting inbox fact from fiction
 
Slacktivism, fauxtography and bald faced lies. Anyone with an email account, an address book and the ability to press 'forward' can - and probably has - committed all of the above.

That's not quite right, is it? It's not a fabricated photo, the myth is the insupported interpretation of the photo.
