What’s wrong with this picture?

A September 24, 2007 photo shows former Embarq CEO Dan Hesse along with other top officers and employees of the company, ringing the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange. Sprint Nextel Corp on Tuesday named Hesse as its president and CEO, effective immediately. REUTERS/PRNewsFoto

Your photo caption says this picture was taken September 24, 2007. Looking at the photo, anyone (except your photo editor?) can see the NYSE clock reads “JUNE 1 THURSDAY”.

Folks, Getting facts correct is vitally important in news media although too often some stories are NOT SPOILT BY THE TRUTH? How about looking at the truth behind circadian disruption? The 24 hour day is killing off Life On Earth. Frankly no-one gives a damn and by the time people realise it will be JTL – Just Too Late?
