AP to Take on Getty?
Just this one quote has me very concerned about a new agency the Associated Press is apparently considering launching to take on Getty Images:
This new for-profit agency — which, with one exception, is currently made up entirely of ex-Getty photogs — would be a way for the AP to send photographers on assignment without having to consider journalistic integrity. AP photographers can’t shoot on assignment for anyone for this reason, but Invision photographers would have their images clearly marked on the AP wire as possibly slanted.
The new entity, InVision, seems to be aimed at just the entertainment industry, but I have to question where PetaPixel came up with the information/idea quoted above …
