Quote from Zalin Grant:
His photo made Time magazine cover.Dana Stone, a college dropout from rural Vermont, had been a lumberjack, gold prospector, male model, and sailor before arriving in Saigon at age 27 to try his hand at war photography. He was one of the best.

Born in Mexico City in 1975.
He won Pulitzer prize.
Unfortunately his subconscious may have over-ridden his conscious mind. Maybe his subconscious felt that photographs must be "beautiful" and cannot have a camera sticking out in one corner of the frame. This is the trouble arising from misuse of photo editing software.
Of course News Organisations cannot accept this; because if it became widespread practice, then everyone would question whether future "news photos" are true or fake. Slight adjustment of exposure/brightness/contrast may be alright.
