Hey MSG!

Do you guys happen to know if it's alright to use stock photos for satirical news articles? Especially photos with models in it. Are there any guidelines to pay heed to, for example, ensuring that the news article is obviously satirical for one?

A few years ago I had an image licensed to a satire paper (similar to The Onion) - image was licensed from Shutterstock (and credited as such).  It was an editorial image of a commercial airplane.

Years back, there was a story I didn't like on The Onion, apparently about a teacher having fantasies over a small girl. The girl was an iS model, and IIRC, they had it removed as she was very young. I just hoped the teacher model wasn't a real teacher (maybe an Onion staffer, as the source wasn't obvious to anyone at the time).
Some on iS at the time (forums) thought the usage was fine. As an actual teacher at the time, I was shocked that they'd even consider putting a child image on this article.

Also this expression of concern, but I don't know how this one ended:

Hey Sue, big thanks for the references. Very useful stuff. I suppose it comes down to whether or not an article  has content that is disrespectful or damaging to the models in the photos used.

I'm actually surprised at the case where The Onion used a picture of a minor. Satire or no, that's still seems to me to be in poor taste. :/

Once again, thank you very much!
