NZ Herald continues the draconian lapsing of standards - does it get "supplied" pictures through Google?

The photo in the NZ Herald’s story Green MP: Super City agency has ‘draconian powers' today is captioned “Green Party MP Sue Kedgley / Photo supplied”.

Ha! Supplied? Perhaps they mean flogged - from the Green Party website.

It's now pulled. Perhaps that is because it is Helen Kedgley, Sue's sister.

This wouldn't be the same New Zealand Herald that got a "supplied" picture of Margo McAuley - Christine Rankins husbands ex-wife - from the Internet as well - given its published pic was the same pic that appeared on McAuleys online Tribute site? Surely not.

Then there's this!
If you really want to know, I would like to ring his [Leo's] blinkin' neck," she said.
Ring? Or wring.

Hat tip Frogblog.

One things thats a shame is the old green party website (up to approx 1 year ago) had an open copyright that allowed people to reuse images etc on it. The current one has no such allowance as everything is under a default ("all rights reserved") copyright.

You would have thought Parties would want nice photos of their people available for others to use but it doesn't seem to be the case.
