AP, where's the bloody Hansbrough photo?

    I've seen the photos of his face since last night ... everywhere but on the AP's Web site.

    Did I miss it? What the heck?
  2. No. It never moved. I think it was a Getty Images shot.

    The thing is, the AP guy RIGHT THERE.

    Damn it.
  4. ESPN gives the credit to US PRESSWIRE, whatever that is.

    How does the AP guy not get it though? I mean it's Duke-Carolina. Keep hitting the button until you get something. Use your camera phone if you have to.

    Is the thread title NSFW for our British brethern?

    I don't think we can just dump on AP. Usually, if a local photog gets SOMETHING, AP will get wind of it and they'll get a copy. There wasn't even anything from locals, other than the Presswire pic that popped up on AP. But it was stunning that no one had anything even remotely approaching a decent shot.

    Well, we pay the AP a lot of money. Everybody does.

    I, for one, expect better than I often seem to get.

    It's not dumping ... it's an attempt hold them to a high standard.

    At a game in Chapel Hill, I've seen the AP use News & Observer photos. And at that game, I can't imagine a photog of theirs that could keep his/her job without an image of that bloody nose.

    I hear you--we should hold them to a higher standard--we're starting to lean more and more on Getty. Just saying that no one other than Presswire seemed to get a usable pic. Seemed odd.
