Fake photos in Myanmar army’s ‘True News’

Reuters, YANGON

Reuters was unable to contact Kyaw Kyaw Oo for comment.

Reuters examined some of the photographs using Google Reverse Image Search and TinEye, tools commonly used by news organizations and others to identify images that have previously appeared online. Checks were then made with the previously credited publishers to establish the origins of those images.

Of eight photographs presented as historical images, Reuters found the provenance of three to be faked and was unable to determine the provenance of the five others.
