Fake: TMZ’s Picture of Steve Jobs

TMZ published a photo on Friday purporting to show a very ill Steve Jobs, but commenters at the website Reddit point to evidence that the image is a fake.

TMZ published a photo on Friday purporting to show a very ill Steve Jobs, but commenters at the website Reddit point to evidence that the image is a fake. There are signs that the image was pinched to make Jobs look more frail; that parts of the image have been cropped; and that some of the shapes in the image are unnatural. The Daily Beast briefly linked to the image on TMZ but removed it after learning that it was dubious.

For obvious reasons, we didn’t post the picture and will not post the evidence of it being fake ( linked above ). Shame on TMZ and especially shame on everybody in this iCommunity who posted the picture thinking that it had ‘ clear news value .
