Pejorative image

This picture from CNN's front page shows the italian who met with Alexander Litvinenko the Russian spy who was poisoned in London. Is it just me or could they have found a photo that made him look any more sinister. The uplighting on his face and set of the eyes scream shady character. This is the kind of lighting kids use at campfires using a torch held under the chin whilst telling scary stories. It certainly seems to me that they are trying to create a certain impression of the man before you even read the article. One wonders what the impact of the article would be if the picture was of him on holiday at the beach with his family.
