Ha!  Another funny bit on poor photoshop skills and stock imagery:

(Thankfully, they didn't notice the Photoshop work on the reflections! ;) )

Priceless.

There was an incident in the UK in 2007 where a Minister failed to arrive for a shoot at a hospital....so they pasted him in.  :)

It's kinda creepy that there are duplicates of the same models in that photo to begin with.

The mistake is hilarious, especially since the exact same thing happened (hand missed) a while back in a different campaign. I can't recall the name of it.

Too funny.  This is the second time (at least) that Rachel Maddow has gone after the big energy companies for using Istock images to fake a representation of their "supporters".  

I love her show!  Obviously she and her staff spend a fair amount of time on Istock.  Hope they are buying something while they are there :D

Seriously - how do they find this stuff?

Being as it is one of Yuri's images how come they are so certain that it was sourced from Istock?

I'm with you Lisa,

 Rachel is the Bomb. One of the few talk show news people that really has a solid education and presents things well while at the same time being so funny. Power to her.

Best,
J
