Piers Tears: Another Fake Mirror Front Page

Under the headline “Britain, 2014.” the Mirror’s front page is really going for emotional shock factor today:

The only problem is that the picture is not “Britain, 2014”, it is “America, 2009” and Anne is crying over an earthworm. The Getty photo was shared via Flickr by Lauren Rosenbaum in November 2009, she has a really cute smile:

Of course this is not the first time that the Mirror have got into trouble for a fake front page photo misrepresenting a wider campaign, editor Lloyd Embley is following in the traditions of Piers Morgan. Nobody mention that “territorial Army base in Lancashire”  and “occupied Iraq”.

UPDATE: The Mirror ran a fake story about mutant super rats in Liverpool and had to pay compensation to a Hampstead man as a result.
