Since the photo conveys no new or false information about JFK’s proclivities, its main significance is that TMZ was sloppy, and since it is well established that it traffics in gossip and rumor anyway, this means Ethics Alarms and others were gullible and careless.
A few points:
- All the questions raised in the post stand.
- This reaffirms my conviction that postng a hoax of any kind on the web, whether photo or otherwise, without clearly designating it as such, is unethical.
- Let us all give thanks for “The Smoking Gun.”
