Beat you to it. See reply #46. 🙂 I have a friend (also my former college professor) who worked for AP and traveled with Pres. Reagan as staff photographer. He posted it. His comment...hope the settlement is huge.

And hes also just wrong.  If it were an article specifically commenting on the photo, it would have fair use claim, possibly.  Just grabbing a photo to use as filler or to illustrate the commentary is infringement.

Plus the whole image is hardly "a brief excerpt."  Low resolution images may be OK.  This is an interesting article on the subject:  https://copyright.columbia.edu/basics/fair-use.html
