Newspapers have nothing better to do these days. I thought paparazzi magazines did this kind of rubbish.
Awareness is one thing. I do agree of bogus photographers being around to take advantage of models.
But to make up the information to your own accord, bring about a wrong image on photographers. Editors edit, till the information sounds all bad. It's unfair at times for the good people out there.
Then again, if we were to make the statements, that models should be more conscious of what they do and whom they mix around. Prevention is the best approach to take.
