Getty load of this: Google to kill off 'View image' button in search


Re: Bad bargaining

"stop putting pointless stock photos at the top of your stories."

I wish I could. But a story with a stick image will get read more than one without. It'll also get about twice as much reach on Facebook.

Also you generally don't get stock images from AP. News shooters tend to shoot very specific images that make lousy stock photos. And whatever contact the BBC has with Getty you can bet it's costing aunty a ton on cash - Getty ain't cheap.
