AP’s unfortunately cropped Boy Scout photo

scoutsLetter to Romenesko

From CHRIS BRIDGES, Daytona Beach News-Journal: Subject — AP provides unfortunately cropped photo for ‘Boy Scouts May Lift Gay Ban’ story. That’s one of the photos provided by the AP wire for this story. I used the same photo for our version, but I cropped the arm out first.

Is AP just messing with us at this point?
