This screen shot was sent in by an alert FrontBurnervian who noticed that WFAA Channel 8 used a fake tornado picture on its newscast last night. In fact, it’s a pretty famous fake tornado picture that has been making the rounds for years. The story on the station’s website is accompanied by unrelated video. Hard to imagine that when management learned of the mistake they decided to put up video of a news story out of WHAS in Louisville, Kentucky.
In any case, as our alert FBvian says, “I know WFAA is increasingly interested in exclusive, amateur photos and video. This one didn’t pan out, though.”
