The multiply-redundant single-point-of-failure editorial desk at Reuters strikes again.
Notice that Ammar Awad doesn't see fit to identify the gentleman above as a member of Neturei Karta, one of the fringe-est of fringe groups in existence today. In neglecting to point this out, is he attempting to legitimize NK's radical beliefs in the eyes of the few who still believe Reuters provides unbiased reporting?
Or is he just too pressed for time to be bothered to put relevant information like that in caption?
Judging by his little faux pas, I'm sure either explanation holds merit.
