More stock photo laziness

I’ve written a couple of times before (here and here) about journalists (or subs) being pretty lazy when it comes to picking stock photos to somewhat illustrate stories.

And for some reason, it always seems to be related to property stories – at least the ones that I’ve noticed anyway.

Another for the list is TheJournal.ie who yesterday posted a story about repossessions of homes in Ireland – illustrated with a photograph of houses from Newcastle, England.

Maybe it’s just me, but if someone’s going to be giving me the news, I’d like them to put a bit of effort into making sure it’s all (story, images, quotes and references) accurate, relevant and appropriate.
