Why fake it? BP have been caught out by bloggers again. They published this photo of their crisis control centre on their web site:
– but a keen eyed blogger spotted that it had been doctored, and eventually BP released what they say is the original, which they had modified by pasting images onto some blank screens (why?):
It is not a one-off – here the same blogger has found another fake photo – and asks “did they fake any videos?”.
You have to wonder why they do it. It tells you a lot about their corporate attitude to truth and how they seek to manipulate their public face.
Ominously, it also tells me that these corporate predators will be highly motivated to constrain the internet in general and the blogosphere in particular.
