Congratulations to Sky News, the Telegraph, the Mail, the Mirror and Metro, who all printed the ‘Grand Canyon leap’ photo-story as fact when it was seen and sorted by Snopes years ago.

Metro has changed its article this morning; they ask earnestly if it might be hoax and speak of “internet rumours”… because you can’t believe everything you read in newspapers on the internet, obviously.

(Psst! Watch the spoilsports over at the Guardian include that rare 5th photograph.)
