Wow, you guys. Have you seen this powerful image of a Tunisian man protesting the Saudi Crown Prince?
The IS the shot of the day as Tunisians, who managed to preserve their revolution against tyranny, protest the upcoming visit of #Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman. #Khashoggi #Tunisia pic.twitter.com/2VlYAWZPCp

CNN’s Jim Sciutto, for one, is pretty blown away:

Here’s a screenshot, juuuuust in case he deletes it later (which he may very well do):
If only he’d done a little basic journalism before sharing it with his Twitter followers, he could’ve saved himself some embarrassment.
This is photoshopped I think

This is photoshopped.

Chainsaw is photoshopped in.

That’s a photoshopped image Jim.

It's a photoshop. Come on.
— Rich Swinton (@RicoSuaveJD) November 26, 2018
A pretty obvious one, at that:
As much as I loathe Saudi Arabia's government, it does appear that this is a photoshopped image, based on one that https://t.co/vZzPyDqMjl finds appearing as early as January 14, 2011. (If you zoom in on yours, you'll see how the hand blurs under the chainsaw.) pic.twitter.com/vDWpjrVebz

Is this obviously photoshopped picture a banana or an apple?

Apples, bananas … they’re all the same to CNN.

You’re right to be embarrassed for Jim. Because he’s embarrassing.
This is embarrassing for you, dude…https://t.co/BiSF5KUwcd

Embarrassing … but not really unusual.
So is this what you would call fake news?
— CommonSense (@CommonS61972527) November 26, 2018
We certainly would.
Be more responsible.

That’s a tall order. After all:
