Interesting and unsurprising.

Although I spent a good deal of time browsing for info and leisure, I seem to not pay the internet much attention to notice this or that or be "captivated" by images in this sense.

As long as the bit if news is mostly truthfull, I see no particular harm in a different image, unless a particular person is directly affected.

i hadn't heard about more than a half of those. and of course a lot of the pictures are not taken actually on the site of action. photos are embellishments and some of them can even be staged in a studio. depends on the story and the context.
