Imagine if The Independent had got the picture wrong in its story this morning entitled: ‘The bare-faced truth about big fat liars‘?
That would have caused all kinds of embarrassment at the subs desk and the picture editor would probably have had to consider its position. I imagine that some advertisers might also be reflecting on their onward positions regarding placing revenues with the paper.
I’d imagine that NewsCorp or Mr Murdoch’s own lawyers would have gone in hard stating that Mr Murdoch certainly does not have a wide face and, therefore, cannot be used to illustrate this story.
So, it’s a damned good idea all round that The Independent didn’t get its picture wrong in this story and used a picture of Richard Nixon instead.
