Creative journalism

Oops, an example of creative journalism was caught red-handed this week.


How much of this goes on, unchecked?


"Look! We made an accurate, silicon model of an elephant's foetus. We used a mixture of ultrascans and computer graphics to simulate how it might look for real."


"Wow, real ultrasounds of an elephant foetus!"


"Cool, the first, close ups of an elephant in the womb! Amazing. Tiny cameras, you say... inserted into the rectum?"


"Stunning! Live animal foetuses from cameras mounted in the womb. Crazy... people are going to love this!"
