For about 10 minutes earlier today, WTOL's Facebook page had this post:
I'm sorry, but any sensible person would know that this picture was not taken in Michigan. A simple Google search that took less than a minute proved that this picture was taken a few years ago in Antarctica (I think). Commenters started ripping WTOL apart and the post soon disappeared.
My question is, who runs the FB accounts for local news media? I've seen other stuff on their account that looks like a Jr. High student posted it. I certainly hope it's not the reporters because if they can't spend five minutes researching something this far-fetched, then that says a lot for any investigative journalism that they put on their newscast.
