AP statement on cropped photo

, by Lauren Easton

The Associated Press issued this statement from Executive Editor Sally Buzbee regarding a cropped photo from Davos, Switzerland, that was published today:

We regret publishing a photo this morning that cropped out Ugandan climate activist Vanessa Nakate, the only person of color in the photo. As a news organization, we care deeply about accurately representing the world that we cover. We train our journalists to be sensitive to issues of inclusion and omission. We have spoken internally with our journalists and we will learn from this error in judgment.
