Dumbest Man on the Internet Forgets to Delete the Unedited Version of the Image He Edited

Following up once again on our posts about Jim Hoft and his now-debunked “report” (I’m using quotes because calling anything Hoft does a “report” is a wild exaggeration) that officer Darren Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture of the eye socket,” we showed yesterday that Hoft or someone at his site had deceptively blacked out the words “UNIV OF IOWA” in the example CT scan they posted, presumably to trick people into thinking it was a scan of Darren Wilson. (In truth, it was a stock image Hoft lifted from a medical site.)

And the trick worked, by the way; right wingers all over Twitter, Facebook and blogs reposted the image as “Darren Wilson’s X-ray.” This bogus claim made it all the way up the wingnut ladder to Ann Coulter’s latest column, in fact.

But hilariously, when Hoft edited the image to erase those words, he simply left the original unedited version on his server without deleting it, and replaced it in the post with the doctored one. How do I know this? Because the unedited image is still right there on Hoft’s web server where he left it:

Image: orbital-blowout.jpg

If you hover over that link, you’ll see that it goes to the Gateway Pundit /uploads/ folder, and has the filename “orbital-blowout.jpg”. (Click the link to see the image.)

The doctored version of the image is here:

Image: cranial-.jpg

And this one has the filename “cranial-.jpg”.

Just in case Hoft now tries to delete the unedited image, I saved a copy of the page at webcitation.org, where you can see that it really was at that address:

webcitation.org

Just one more inadvertently funny example of why Jim Hoft is well known as the Dumbest Man on the Internet.
