BBC pics on Scoble story

Ex-BBC man Euan Semple is right. It's pretty shameful for the BBC to use a picture of a glum Bill Gates on their top Technology story (which is a bit mad in itself), reporting Robert Scoble's departure. Granted, the initial choice (a cropped screengrab) wasn't great, but it's not as if a quick scan of Flickr wouldn't have found hundreds of usable pictures (and, admittedly, some very definitely not), many of which were actually taken yesterday. Not a great choice, on the day the BBC celebrates its Webby – with a TV package, no less.
Update: they've gone back to the screengrab. Less bad, but still bad.
