    As we enter the Beijing Olympics home straight, relations between Games organisers and the foreign media are getting increasingly testy.
    On Wednesday, Beijing Olympic vice-president Wang Wei, accused the foreign media of nitpicking:
    "We welcome the people and the colleagues of the Olympic Games with us and we welcome suggestions that are constructive advice from these people, all kinds of peoples. But the foreign press, you come here to pick, critically dig into details, but that doesn't mean we don't fulfil on our promises. "
    Although he didn't specify which details we are supposed to be picking on, it's clear that the organisers are in a huff about:
    :: the blow-up about internet access that hit the fan before the Games got underway;
    :: the discovery that fake fireworks were used in the broadcast of the opening ceremony;

    :: and they're probably also unhappy about reports about empty stands and the absence of spectators.
    My colleague Jacqueline Magnay pulls it together today in a piece about the growing crediblity gap.
    "... the Chinese attempts to manipulate the messages that are conveyed around the world through the written press has backfired."
    In the interest of documenting these faux pas, I've assembled a gallery of fake Olympic moments:
