Images from the Washington Redskins-Jacksonville Jaguars game on Sunday, Sept. 14, 2014
High-profile acts of photo theater
From President Obama skeet shooting at Camp David to walking on the moon, photographs of key moments have served as evidence of proof — or fodder for conspiracy theories. Here is a look at some newsmakers over the years.
Picture: During the 2004 presidential election, a photo surfaced that appeared to show Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry and actress Jane Fonda sitting next to each other at a Vietnam War protest rally. Circulated with an Associated Press logo and attached to what looked like an old newspaper article, the black-and-white photo quickly spread across the Internet, particularly among conservative blogs and websites. Both the image and its accompanying newspaper trappings were phony, created by combining two separate photographs — one of Mr. Kerry speaking at a 1971 anti-war rally, the other of Miss Fonda speaking at a 1972 rally.
