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.

NASA has provided plausible explanations for all of the above: Stars weren’t visible due to the brightness of the sun during the lunar daytime; inconsistent shadows and lighting were the result of lens distortion, lunar dust, uneven ground and multiple light sources; the “C†shape does not appear in original lunar camera film and is believed to be a coiled hair that made its way into the printing processes
