  1. Bolivian TV channel PAT showed footage it claimed was shot by a passenger aboard ill-fated Air France flight 447 as the aircraft broke apart above the ocean and was salvaged from the passenger's phone

    in fact, it was footage from an episode of Lost

    I'm shocked it took seven posts for someone to get the low-hanging fruit.
