VegNews caught using photos of meat, dairy

New York Times
The blogger who broke the story about VegNews writes: “This situation exposes a clear issue with the editorial integrity of Veg News. They are KNOWINGLY publishing misleading pictures of MEAT dishes, and passing them off as vegan. If they will stoop that low (and appear to have been doing so for years) what else can we not trust about this formerly erstwhile publication?” || What VegNews says:

Yes, from time to time, after exhausting all options, we have resorted to using stock photography that may or may not be vegan. In an ideal world we would use custom-shot photography for every spread, but it is simply not financially feasible for VegNews at this time.

We have made it easy to comment on posts, however we require civility and encourage full names to that end (first initial, last name is OK). Please read our guidelines here before commenting.

    “Formerly erstwhile”? I have no idea what the blogger’s native language might be, but if it’s English I hope he or she makes it out of grade school someday.
