NYT Falls for Hoax Kerry-Fonda Photo

I think that Sheryl Gay Stolberg didn't do all her homework.

Conservatives Shine Spotlight on Kerry's Antiwar Record: And on Thursday, a new photograph of the senator and the actress began circulating via e-mail. Unlike the image Mr. Sampley bought, which shows Mr. Kerry seated several rows behind Ms. Fonda, this picture — its origins are unclear — shows them side by side, Ms. Fonda behind a microphone and Mr. Kerry, holding a notebook, to her right.

That wouldn't be this photo now would it?

Snopes.com: John Kerry

Claim: Photograph shows Senator John Kerry with Jane Fonda at an anti-war rally.

Status: False.

    I’m afraid you are mistaken. “Unlike the image Mr. Sampley bought, which shows Mr. Kerry seated several rows behind Ms. Fonda, this picture — its origins are unclear — shows them side by side, Ms. Fonda behind a microphone and Mr. Kerry, holding a notebook, to her right”. The picture you linked to is authentic, and is the one which shows Kerry and Fonda several rows apart two years before her famous Hanoi trip. So that’s the first picture, not the faked one. Incidentally, the Times admitted the latter photo is a fake, but without connecting to its earlier article…

    is it true John Kerry was dishonorably discharged or the Navy tried to do so, 2 years before he was discharded from the Navy? We recieved an e-mail tonight telling us this from a retired Navy Captain/Navy lawyer
