Picture: A widely-circulated photo appeared to show President George W. Bush holding a picture book upside down while reading with children during a 2002 Houston school visit.

Controversy: The photo gave visual ammunition to Mr. Bush’s detractors and political opponents, many of whom caricatured the president as, well, not so bright.

Verdict: Fake. Comparison to an original Associated Press photograph shows that the book’s “upside-down†cover was digitally altered.
