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.

And while the furore over a fake email scam continues to distract Australia's political leaders, for internet mythbusters David and Barbara Mikkelson, there are more pressing matters of cyber fabrication at hand.

...while a picture of First Lady Michelle Obama posing at a soup kitchen for a "homeless" person equipped with a $500 camera phone was also dismissed as a fabrication.
That's not quite right, is it? It's not a fabricated photo, the myth is the insupported interpretation of the photo.
