On Friday's edition of Morning Meeting, host Dylan Ratigan featured fake photos of Sarah Palin during a mocking segment on why Americans are fascinated with the former vice presidential candidate. While listing the show’s top ten reasons, Ratigan showed a doctored photo of Palin’s head on the bikini-clad body of a woman holding a weapon.

IIRC, this photo was circulated during the Presidential election. To my knowledge, it was never supposed to be anything but a satire. I'm not sure what MSNBC is doing, but I wonder whether they intended this to be satirical, as opposed to real news.

You can *NOT* "Accidently" Splice footage
or when was the last time you accidently wrote a book?
Now, using a mocking fake picture in an obviously mocking piece? Erm... would you be suprised to learn that neither bush nor obama had small mustaches underneath their noses, and all those pictures were faked???
Do you think apologies are needed for that?
The host never admitted or addressed the fact that his network was passing off counterfeit pictures to his viewers. Earlier in the segment, Ratigan displayed an image of Palin in a short, black mini-skirt. This photo is also not real.

The one big mistake I see though, is that she is no longer a public official, but a private person, so there may be some vague legal lines about the legality of this showing on televison. Not sure, but it was a talking point.
