You would think that the Daily Mail would have at least taken the time.com website link off of their 1997 mockup. That wasn’t added to the print magazine editions until the April 27, 1998 edition.

Randall Gross,

Looks like they didn’t check their sources, either that or the Daily Mail deliberately deceived its readers. Looks like we should stay away from the Daily Mail if we’re looking for real news, much like we should stay away from Fox News.

Not this stupid canard about “they thought there would be another ice-age in the 70’s.” First-of-all, its not true. Even then most climate scientists expected global warming. Second, even if it was true, so what? Scientists update their theories based on new evidence, that’s how science works! Wingnuts are always going on about how we can’t trust science because “back then you said this, and now you say this”. It’s a feature, not a bug you idiots.

That’s why we need to rely solely on the bible. It never changes, no matter what evidence the scientists find.

Someone did go to a lot of trouble to fake that cover, though. Each of the titles from 2007 has been cleverly adjusted to 1977 references, rather than just constructing it completely from whole cloth.

Of course, the time.com thing, in 1977? That’s a scream!

This reminds me of that Martin Luther King Jr. Internet hoax “Letter to an Anti-Zionist” that was making the rounds back in the day. The hoax even referenced a specific issue of Saturday Review, which, if you actually went and looked up all 4 issues for August 1967, did not contain any articles by MLK.

That hoax has been mostly debunked, but some folks still fall for it, like Pamz.
