Keep in mind that I'm playing as a WWI fighter pilot and it is October 1916.

The font is not in keeping with the printing style of the Great War period.

I don't think they were calling it "Big Oil" back then.

Both of you are correct in noticing that the newspaper in the screenshot is modern day and not from 1916!

You're supposed to be playing as a German pilot and yet you're reading a newspaper from the US.

Not to mention the news are from nearly 100 years into the future.

There is a mouse cursor in the middle of it. Not to mention, they didn't have screenshots back in those days.

The toasted bread is obviously factory sliced, not available until 1930's in England.

You are all wrong, they didn't have mouse pointers like that until 2009.
