I’m confused

Okay, The Sun calls for heads to roll at the Beeb for faking the Queen’s exit from a photo shoot, but when they print fake pictures of a Great White shark in Cornwall it’s okay? Have I got that right?

So when is it okay to lie? Seems to be it’s not okay when you believe it to be true (like the BBC), but okay if you’re the Sun. But they’re just cheeky chappies aren’t they?

Is the fakery issue just one of those cyclic issues in media, just as early photography came under fire for early fakes. Seems to stem from our need to to trust new technology and forget that there are people behind the scenes, people who are not necessarily trustworthy.
