COMMENT: ABC recently reported on a letter signed by 250 scientistsÂ published in the journal Science.
The letter is accompanied by a photo of a lone Polar Bear on an ice berg credited toÂ ISTOCKPHOTO.COM. The photo is a fake with the following note in the photo caption at Istockphoto: “This images is a photoshop design. Polarbear, ice floe, ocean and sky are real, they were just not together in the way they are now.”
What does the use of a faked photo say about the scientific credibility of the journal in question?
Wonder why the ABC didn’t pick this one up, they do have previous experience with Polar Bears.
