Hmm.. The newspaper that Hughes is reading around 11:00 contains information from the year 1992, while the story is about 80 years older.
(I didn't find this out myself. See the comment here
i find this to be an interesting connecting story that Bones used to fill screen space....
the story is from 1992, covering the Rodney King Riots - a little research shows this article is pulled word-for-word from Uriah J. Fields' eye witness account...
Now for any show or movie that has a scene with words or articles or things that can be paused to be read one at least hopes that they are legible (unlike the wording on the tombstone) or in a legible language (like the gate, again)... next one would hope that at least the words are coherent and relevant (like here, the article to the left is about Riots in Liore, the one on the right is about Riots in America)
I'm not defending the obvious mis-connection between fact and fiction (and 85 years), but perhaps Bones decided this isn't the most important thing to care about - which is a quality issue.. How much do the producers care about their work?
Example: I recently watched Iron Man, and paused the film when the article about Tony Stark's college life showed on screen (MIT). I read it, and it was an actual article written about Tony Stark, nothing broken or mistyped.. a complete fictional and coherent essay written only to be shown for 1 second - now that's dedication to the art.
3 criteria for a dedication to every millisecond on screen can be seen from text:
1) is it an actual language?
2) is it legible/somewhat coherent?
3) is it relevant?
And if you have all three, is it written specifically for the 1 second it is shown?
If so, then you know it's high quality work
