Watch Those File Names

Every now and then, journalists accidentally tip their hands, like when the Philadelphia Inquirer created a joke editorial page with an amusing comments policy (“To comment briefly on editorials, call 215-854-5060. The Editorial Board members will roll their eyes and chuckle at your remarks.”) Then they accidentally published it.
Along those lines, Glenn Reynolds keenly observes The Atlantic:

The Atlantic’s photo editors show their feelings – the McCain Photo above the story has this name: loser.jpg

 Loser? Not only is it insulting, it may turn out to be wrong.
