Poor Ed Miliband. On Sunday evening NBC News in the United States used a photograph of him blowing his nose as a stock image to highlight the dangers of flu.
Introducing the segment, the presenter Kristen Welker told viewers: “Flu season has arrived and there are fresh concerns tonight many school districts are seeing an uptick, there are concerns not enough people are getting flu shots.”
A picture of the former Labour leader flashed up on screen as the warning was issued.
The original photograph is a Getty image taken during the 2011 Labour Party conference in Liverpool.
