Show me a story: ABC's photo flub

Brian Stelter looks at how photos can be used - and mis-used - by the media when telling a story.

Correction from Brian: the final photo I mentioned in this segment, of President Obama's meeting with Texas governor Rick Perry and other officials, was not taken aboard Air Force One; it was taken at Dallas Love Field. I'm sorry for the error.

    Speaking of photo flubs, you said the Rick Perry photo was "from Air Force One."
    This is the AF1 conference room (note the aircraft windows):
    This is a conference room in Dallas (where Perry met with Obama):
    First clue: that's a Texas flag at the back. Not seen on AF1.
    Perhaps this was an honest mistake, but was it in the script, or in your brain?
