    Maybe it was simply a cheap way for a struggling business to cut costs (pure speculation of course). Bearing in mind how much 'news' is syndicated in the modern world, perhaps there is less and less scope for having your own staff.

    And I did'nt read any quotes from the gentleman himself. Seems a little one sided to me.
    The Bee has sent 400 workers home in the last four years or so of layoffs, they don't need excuses. And stories I read indicated they tried to reach the photographer for comment, unsuccessfully. Bottom line, he knew he was in the wrong and was treated appropriately.

Okay, joking about the language part but serious about the ethics, except that UK press ethics are not screwed up, they are just different in a lot of aspects. Acceptance of staging and manipulation of "news" images is absolutely highest on the list (don't get me starting on cell call and voice mail hacking!) of transatlantic differences we share.


    Yep, I'm UK based...and there was me thinking the only language differance is the way we pronounce "tomato"...ha ha.........As for the ethics bit, many here believe one word sums up the fall from grace..........Murdoch.

I think in some ways ethical codes have become more strict, or at least more clearly defined.

    Where it came from and when it entered American journalism, I have no idea. 19th century papers were usually organs for one political party or another with as much or more twisting of truth and outright lying as inflicts us from cable TV and the web now.

    Reading those comments it seems like some people want it both ways. They complain about distortions in verbal (TV) and written news reporting while at the same time defending what the photographer did. No wonder our leaders seem so confused!
