Sunday Times in Modern Warfare fail

You may recall a short while ago I posted about the massive fail at ITV whereby they managed to include footage from a video game (ArmA 2) whilst giving the impression it was an IRA video. Ofcom ruled that they were in breach of the Broadcast Code. Well, it only turns out that the Sunday Times have used an image of the fictional soldier, Soap MacTavish, from the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series in a story about an ill-fated Nigerian-based rescue attempt that resulted in the death of a Briton and an Italian. I'd love to link to the story but News Corp have stuck the Times behind a paywall.


The Sunday Times even went as far as striking out the eyes of Soap, you know, just in case any of his fictional relatives recognised him and feared for his safety. I really can't tell why this picture is associated with the story. From the composition, it also looks like Soap is on a call with David Cameron.

The Media Blog picked this story up and it's since been reposted over at Tech Radar and C&VG. It looks like this may be a case of the mainstream media failing in their ability to distinguish fiction from reality again. It also seems a little tasteless to include an image from a video game when writing about a tragic incident.
