News Pictures

Day after day we see harrowing pictures from the crash scene in Ukraine and Palestine and day after day we see the same news pictures. Why? because there is no date on the pictures and so we are led to believe that the scenes pictured happened the day of broadcast, and commentators refer to the pictures as if they happened on the day of the commentary.

This is wrong. Why can’t news pictures and not only in these particular incidents but all news pictures, show the date so that viewers know when that incident happened otherwise the pictures and the commentary are misleading, and in fact mis-representing the news.
