Believe it or not, got tipped off to these photos from a thread at DU. I'll give credit where credit is due. Looks like CNN has stepped into it again. Opinions?

These evil fat mustards have the same designer and builder for their reactors, so they could be different facilities with the same look and feel?

Yes those are the same. next time you should elaborate more on what you are talking about. I finally found the photo of the NK nuclear site by looking and finding the images link on the right, but where'd the Iran photo come from? Link?

The photo at the link is captioned An aerial photo of North Korea's Yongbyon nuclear plant outside of Pyongyang.. The filename of the picture is story.suspected.site.iran.

Further proof that CNN folks aren't infallable. Let the blogstorm begin !! (/sarcasm)

Even when you are on the CNN site, the label says "suspected site in North Korea", but when you hold the mouse over the image, it says "suspected site in Iran".

Duh...

I don't get the point here. Was there any doubt that both Iran and N Korea had nuclear power plants built or in the works? I mean, it's super common knowledge. Interesting photo, esp the Kournikova one. That must be the codename for the Korean Nuclear plans, right? Project Kournikova? ;)

The source of a photo on the web can be found by "right-clicking" on a photo.

The source of the "Nort Korean reactor" photo was :.......http://i.a.cnn.net/cnn/2005/WORLD/asiapcf/02/12/nkorea.nukes.ap/story.suspected.site.iran.jpg.

The source of the "Iranian reactor" photo was :.......http://i.a.cnn.net/cnn/2005/WORLD/meast/02/09/kay.iran/story.suspected.site.iran.2.jpg

It seems that CNN used the same stock photo of the "suspected site Iran" for both it's North Korean and Iranian reactor stories.

The practice would fall under the "fake but true" category.

Thanks. You are correct, it is the same photo, one looks to be turned a little and a closer shot.

"The practice would fall under the "fake but true" category."

Since photos elicit emotions on a deeper plain (if plains can be deep) than common reporting, one can only wonder how much has been passed off as true before the internet age. The pros may have to be forced to become professional.
