Recycled terror news


Most UK newspapers, on September 8th, 2009, headlined with the "news" of a massive terrorist plot. Actually, the story was recycled from April 4, 2008. And when it appeared in April 2008, it was recycled from August 2006 (when the plot was originally reported as foiled). Compare the front pages, 2008 & 2009:
