Idiots at Nation Newspaper still publishing computer game image as real photo

The next time The Nation talks about professional journalism, show the editor this article

Once again the professional editors and journalists at The Nation published a screen shot of a computer game as a real photo to illustrate a story about Barbados’ Grantley Adams International Airport. (Nation News: Cheaper GAIA)

Not only that, the Nation stole the copyrighted photo from a Swedish website and is using it without owner’s permission. We mentioned The Nation’s previous use of the same photo in our article Nation Newspaper publishes computer game screenshot as real photo of airport!

Come on guys! Send the kid out to the airport to take a few shots and use those as your file photos. The Nation really hasn’t been the same since a group of core staff quit and went to Barbados Today.

Hey… Lookee here! Barbados Today covered the same story in much more detail, and they have a real photo taken at the time. Maybe The Nation should send a few of its staff for some training with Barbados Today!

    For the third time, Barbados newspaper Nation online are using a screen shot from a computer game instead of actually taking a real picture of Grantley Adams Airport. Surely someone must know where the airport is or own a camera at the. Nation?
