The BBC had some truly shocking pictures of the floods in Burma last night. Trouble was:
"Last night the BBC broadcast a still which we said showed dozens of bodies lying in the waterfront of the Irrawaddy delta.

We have since discovered that the picture was actually taken in Aceh, Sumatra following the tsunami of 2004".
Ah, that world-renowned BBC news service. Paid for by license payers for the good of the nation, don't you know...
