Politico included a photo of Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally in its coverage of the Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert rallies Oct. 30, Media Bistro’s FishBowl DC noted.

Jon Ward of the Daily Caller is credited with the find.  “I sent an email to some folks over there but didn’t hear back so although I don’t prefer calling things out on Twitter, cuz it seems like showboating, I figured it was the quickest way to get someone’s attention so they could change it,” Ward is quoted as telling Fishbowl DC.

He had tweeted Oct 30 “hey @politico, the picture on your front page is of the Beck rally, not the Stewart rally.”
