Good Journalism?

The AP caption reads, "The fall 2008 collection of Isaac Mizrahi is modeled during Fashion Week in New York, Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2008." But the photo shows a model wearing the designer's shoes, with obvious signs of painful discomfort (bandages, probably over blisters; red, irritated skin).

Aha! Or? How do you know she was chaffed by those shoes and not by others she had worn earlier in the day? Or by the endless donning and doffing of shoes for a fashion show?
