This picture flashed on the screen for only a few moments early last week while reporting on a recent "Drone Strike" in Pakistan. Is this really the best they can do for research? Your thoughts?

And we wonder why there is so much negative promotion of our hobby? In my opinion a large amounth is caused by "the news" and other tv programs by not getting checking their stories or, in this case pictures.
Stefan, I agree. Probably some intern Googled Drone and it was the first thing he saw. I searched later for the same story on the web and this image did not appear anywhere. The predator was shown elsewhere.
jajajaja, i prefer to take this with humor
@ Charles, You're right, we should.
Sure we can take it with a bit of humour, but what about the general public?
Just reinforcing the bad image our community is getting!
"drone" ? if it was just a strike aircraft it was suitable fot him?
It looks like they might be trying to make up for it here. http://www.cnn.com/2013/11/03/business/meet-your-friendly-neighborh...
I wonder if there is any correlation between the mishap and this being posted.
Wow, the article in the Business section is very positive and well informed!
If it was hastily thrown in to appease complaints about the multicopter image, it was still done well.
@Adam: First 11 images in a Google search of "Drone" gives you the predator!
I would find this comical if it weren't for the fact that people will associate that shape/figure with that event.
Karsai said "unsuitable time" the perfect 30(flight time) minute window and it did tens of dollars of damage.
