TinEye in action
CP24 NEWS Y U NO CHECK PHOTO SOURCE!

Hat tip to our TinEye fan @adamgoucher for this little gem:

The little article he is referring to is the article that CP24 News in Toronto released this morning about thunderstorms and hail warning for our city: Toronto. Turns out the “lightning seen in this file photo” is well, lightning allright but not anywhere close to Toronto, not even Canada! ooops! That photo title should read “Night thunderstorm in Kiev” from stock.xchng. TinEye strikes again?

Isn’t file photo just another name for stock image?

Not really. File photo means a photo we have on file. In this case as the article is about thunderstorm warning it would mean photo we have on file for a previous local thunderstorm. + it if is a stockphoto – as this is the case – and this is an editorial use, it should really spell out the copyright.
