  • It’s probably not human error, but reliance (stupidly for a news website) on machine-generated stock photos to illustrate the story based on keywords. A lot of content farms are doing this nowadays, and I wouldn’t be surprised if minor news publications are using the same or similar software packages that include the same “feature”.
