Update: Or maybe this is a joke. Let me check some more.
Upupdate: I found a different photo of this middle-aged 16-year-old’s in the Daily Mail
on 10/24/2016, but so far I haven’t it in The Guardian
Upupupdate: This Guardian
cover is for real! It’s not a satire like I worried it might be after I put up the post below. I hate being wrong, so I try hard not to be wrong.
Here’s the Tweet
sent out by The Guardian
with a photo of its front page.
And so, here below is my original post, which turned out to be correct. The Guardian’s
frontpage of 10/25/16 was so self-evidently hilarious that about five minutes after I posted it here I got cold feet and figured that nobody
could be that smugly delusional so there might be a high chance it is a photoshopped satire on The Guardian
But, no. It’s really for real. So, here’s my original post, which I’ve since verified:
Here’s a screenshot of The Guardian’s
front page on 10/25/2016:The Guardian’s
caption under its photo of one of the “children” reads:
“A 16-year-old from Ethiopia cries while he awaits registration at a processing centre in the makeshift camp near Calais.”
