BBC and Guardian Change Picture of Khalid Masood on Hajj

Date

8 Oct 2018

The BBC and the Guardian used a picture of terrorist, Khalid Masood on Hajj, despite other images of Masood being available. After a complaint was sent by the MCB’s Centre for Media Monitoring (CfMM) team, both outlets changed their picture. See screenshot of BBC above, and a reflective article written by the Guardian’s Readers’ Editor, Paul Chadwick, about the careful use of images.
