MSNBC host duped by ridiculously fake Hurricane Sandy pic

MSNBC's Touré (FILE)\n

MSNBC host Toure was fascinated by this photo making the rounds on Twitter, purportedly showing post-Hurricane Sandy devastation in an underground New York City subway station:

Seriously?  And this guy is a news analyst?

Aside from the sloppy photo editing, it seems like the fully-lit subway subway tunnel should've tipped Toure off that this was an obvious fake.  And who honestly thinks the flood of dirty water swirling around New York City is as crystal clear as the coast off Cancun?  And if that didn't tip you off, how about the puddles of water on the subway floor?!

So yes, I suppose this photo is "incredible" -- as in completely preposterous.  Think before you tweet.
