Not hardcore lactivism, but I found it sort of entertaining...when news sources, especially websites, run stories on breastfeeding, they tend to reach for generic breastfeeding images that they had in their files or pulled from an image share. But I've started to notice some images getting recycled. Remember those gorgeous pictures of Maggie Gyllenhaal nursing her daughter in public a year or two ago? Canada.com used that shot to illustrate a story titled, "Gene behind breastfeeding IQ boost." The Money Times even used mothering's universal breastfeeding symbol as the image for some AP recap on the higher IQ breastfeeding study.
Y'all seen anything similar?

I saw one last week on FOX morning show (I think) that used images that were so old. 1980's hairstyles, shoulder pads - I'll bet that some of the moms were wearing legwarmers.
