Rantings of a sub-editor

Do looks matter? Do pictures matter?

Ah, we’ve all been there. The caption says one thing, the picture something else entirely.

Today, I caught the Metro at it.

“When I work with children we talk about people who have achieved things, like Nelson Mandela (pictured),” says Dr Linda Papadopoulos. “I ask them what they think of his appearance and they look at me like I’m mad because it is irrelevant.”

When they look at you as if you are mad, Linda, are you holding up a picture of a chess board and claiming it is Nelson Mandela?

Oopsie!
