HuffPo fumbles

The Huffington Post is at it again. As noted here and here, the site plays it fast and loose when it comes to use of file photos, sometimes creating false impressions.

This time, HuffPo includes an image of quarterback Brett Favre in a link to a story about a political candidate's sexual past with members of the Green Bay Packers. Favre, however, is never mentioned in that story. The candidate says she had encounters with the Packers of the 1960s, not the team of today.

Yet the way this is presented on the site leads one to think otherwise. Brett Favre should be peeved. And HuffPo should get a new photo editor.
