I thought this was an interesting citation to an image posted on Minnesota Democrats Exposed by Ryan Lyk:
“Photo courtesy of Duluth New[s] Tribune”? Really? That sounds strange. I didn’t know that the Duluth News Tribune was in the business of giving away news content, including photos. One would think, at a minimum, that the paper would expect a link back to the relevant article, or at least the website the photo was “courtesy” of, but that didn’t happen ether. (Admittedly, the Duluth News Tribune is one of the more difficult sites to link to since they bury their stories behind a pay wall, making the site much less relevant to people who enjoy linking to news they find interesting.)
So I asked Ryan about this in the comments on MDE:
Within an hour of posing that question, the stolen photo was quietly removed from Minnesota Democrats Exposed.
As usual, MDE decided to quietly revise history rather than update their post in a manner that would allow people to realize that what was originally posted had changed.
Granted, Ryan Lyk is one courteous thief. How many thieves are willing to publicly thank their victims? It takes a special kind of thief to do that.
