PM and the fake cartoon revisited

In its review of the week, BBC Radio Four’s PM has just re-broadcast this section of Rob Broomby's report from last Monday:
The blue touch paper had been lit by a series of cartoons published in a Danish newspaper in September. One portrayed the Prophet Mohammed with a turban shaped like a time bomb.
The clip ends abruptly right there. That's because Broomby went on to say:
Another showed him with a face of a pig.
This, of course, is bullshit as the pig picture was not one of the Danish cartoons but a fake added to the dodgy dossier by Danish Muslims.

PM still hasn't acknowledged that it aired this lie.
