Vegan Magazine Uses Photos Of Meat

Photo from Quarrygirl.com

What’s with photo scandals this week?  First it was a fake Statue Of Liberty on U.S. postage stamps.  Now, it looks like vegans have been looking at meat in a popular vegetarian-lifestyle magazine.

VegNews is a major online and print publication in the vegan world, but eagle-eyed readers recently caught them using stock photographs of non-vegan food, claiming they were animal-free images. The stock photos were noticed by the website QuarryGirl, who uploaded comparison pics of images from the website and magazine and their iStockPhoto counterparts.

The story blew up on Friday with VegNews’ awkward response in which they put the blame squarely on the time and money constraints of a small independent magazine, as well as the industry standard of using stock photography:
