2. Bush Campaign Ads Duplicate Crowds
During the 2004 presidential election, the campaign of George W. Bush ran an ad titled "Whatever It Takes." It was shown swiftly by the John Kerry campaign that the crowds in the images had been synthesized. No one was too happy about the discovery. "Now we know why this ad is named 'Whatever it Takes,'" a Kerry rep wrote. "This administration has always had a problem telling the truth from Iraq to jobs to health care. The Bush campaign's advertising has been consistently dishonest in what they say. But today, it's been exposed for being dishonest about what we see."
