CBS News used a hoax image of former President George W. Bush’s recent memoir, Decision Points, Fox News reported. The fake image looks very similar to the real cover, but adds the sentence “How I managed to go eight years without making one good decision.”
The doctored cover was reportedly aired “for a fraction of a second” during a feature on book covers.
Fox News reported that CBS addressed the hoax, calling it a “mistake.” CBS reportedly stated “you’d have to freeze the frame to notice” the error.
“Clearly we have to be more careful when downloading material.” iMediaEthics previously has written about the plagiarism claims against Bush’s Decision Points here.
