TVNZ and TV3 use photoshopped image of tornado

Hatip :Spare Room » Blog Archive » TV News Uses Photoshopped Tornado

TVNZ and TV3 have been caught using a photoshopped image of a tornado on their News shows.

The woman who created the image as a bit of fun said she was surprised the news organisations didn’t check its authenticity. “It took two minutes to make and was so fudged it wasn’t funny,” she said.

TV3 used the image briefly near the end of the story and One News used it as their opening image.

What a bunch of complete asses!!

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
