A fake image of Tusk on the cover of a Polish magazine

the hijacked photo

(B2) The image fits like a glove with the title chosen by W Sieci to illustrate the photo of Donald Tusk: “ He won't come back again. He chose the luxury of the (European) Union ". But apparently it is more of a photomontage, not worthy of journalism.

a blogger Josef Moneta (predestined name!) discovered the pot of roses by detecting a photo similar at Getty. A man looks out the window, in a business plane, with a glass of champagne in his right hand, with the cockpit in the background. With one difference: this one is bearded, whereas the other photo shows the President of the European Council. It is also part of a series intended to illustrate business aviation as a place of luxury and relaxation (see another photo here ou here).

Or how to use rather dubious processes in the service of a rather tasteless personal attack.
