    i have no idea, but that is the TV anchor for the ABC news in DC...

    so i know he's real, as for the picture, who knows... i just thought it was funny as hell...

    Not the rape part, but the irony...

    actually, after doing some homework on this, i looked up abc 7, and i noticed that the guy is the anchor for ABC Los Angeles... not Washington DC.

    Funny, but I agree it's fake. The text on the image overlay is aligned incorrectly, as pointed out by a poster above.

    I feel the need to save a copy of that and add the text "PWN3D!!!!!!11111" at the bottom. I'll save it now and add the text later. ;)

    I think you over estimate the abilities of the graphics departments of local news shows. :p

    I think it's real. Notice the consistent lighting over the text. It matches perfectly with the rest of the TV.

    Yeah, and the alignment could be due to the fact it appears to be on a curved CRT.

    Funny and unfortunate for him, though!

    They have the exact same nose. Not too much else in common though.

    Brilliant!

    Reminds me of one of the crime buster programmes on TV a few years ago where a policeman was being interviewed saying they were looking for such and such a vehicle, registration . . . "What, that one there?" the interviewer asked, pointing to the car they wanted behind the policeman . . .

    Like what was said before, that is Marc Brown, who is an anchor on KABC 7 Los Angeles.

    It's not that much different, and you have to realize that's just a sketch as well, not the final draft :p .
