The Pathetic New York Times

Taken in by a fake photo.

And on Thursday, a new photograph of the senator and the actress began circulating via e-mail. Unlike the image Mr. Sampley bought, which shows Mr. Kerry seated several rows behind Ms. Fonda, this picture - its origins are unclear - shows them side by side, Ms. Fonda behind a microphone and Mr. Kerry, holding a notebook, to her right.

Next time photos of unclear origins appear, maybe the NYT should check Snopes before running with stories about them.
