Vegetarian Magazine Uses Photos Of Delicious Meat

by | 15th, April 2011

THE photos of delicious non-meaty meals in VegNews, a San Francisco-based vegetarian magazine, might actuially be of meat.

A blogger called Quarrygirl broke the story:

“This situation exposes a clear issue with the editorial integrity of Veg News. They are KNOWINGLY publishing misleading pictures of MEAT dishes, and passing them off as vegan. If they will stoop that low (and appear to have been doing so for years) what else can we not trust about this formerly erstwhile publication?”

VegNews replies:

Yes, from time to time, after exhausting all options, we have resorted to using stock photography that may or may not be vegan. In an ideal world we would use custom-shot photography for every spread, but it is simply not financially feasible for VegNews at this time.

Says on commenter:

“…a photo meant to illustrate ‘Vegan Spare Ribs’ was apparently made more convincingly meatless by removing the bones via Photoshop.”

The correct way to remove bones is, of course, with your teeth…
