@IBTimes’s deceitful photo choice

Even though the story about a gay concentration camp in Chechnya has less than nothing to do with Christians, International Business Times has chosen to use a photo that implicates them.

If you look closely at the photo, you can see that the signs include Christian scriptures, even though the article does mention – in the last paragraph and, really, how many people read that far – that Chechnya is a majority Muslim country that adheres to traditional Islamic values.

The photo doesn’t appear within the body of the article; rather it appears as the default when the story is linked and shows up in a Bing search.

Unless they want to claim stupidity, there’s no innocent explanation for this.
