    it is not honest and not authentic.

    Everywhere else  if you would put a "make believe" image in an article to "illustrate" something that isn't related to the event you have written about in your story, you would get fired for it.

    Just my opinion. It's your personal diary, but then it's a public site.

    •  It has been clearly identified for what it most (1+ / 0-)

      certainly is -  a picture of what democracy looks like in the US, Egypt, or Israel.    It has not been misrepresented and the source I took it from has been clearly identified and linked.   Last but not least, a clear identification of it as Tel Aviv was made it comments, and the article has been updated to include his information.

      I do understand and felt like I should take it down when it was pointed out that it clearly wasn't NY.   However, it is a great photograph, it is about protests for democracy regardless of the location, and it is directly related to this article and our protest called OWS by the 99%.    So, I decided to leave it in and make it transparent, which is what I think I did.   It was an honest mistake well exposed and well corrected .   I hope you can agree to at least that.

      Yes we can, but he won't.
