Miami Herald punk'd

UPDATED x1 below.

Even some of the best newspapers get had from time to time.

Yesterday, a Miami Herald photo editor was had.

The unnamed editor sifted through the hundreds of photos sent out by wire services following the guilty verdict in the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray.

And the photo he selected made it to the front page of today's paper with this caption: "Michael Jackson fans react Monday in Los Angeles after Dr. Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter..."

Just one problem...the guy on the right in the photo ain't a fan.

Viewers of the Jimmy Kimmel show will recognize him as Jake Byrd, a comedian who acts up for the benefit of Kimmel's camera crews at celebrity trials in Los Angeles.

UPDATE: According to blogger Charles Apple, at least 9 other newspapers used a similar photo of Byrd on the front page.
