Courier Husting and "justice4hollie"

The Courier and FSB have been holding a series of hustings around the constituencies in Tayside and Fife (apart from Kirkcaldy because GB wouldn't attend). In the report the following day it has been the usual practice to show a picture of all the candidates seated at the table. Last week at Dunfermline the "justice4hollie" sign was clearly seen on the picture of the candidates.
On Tuesday evening I was standing in for our candidate in Glenrothes, prior to the hustings I placed the sign on the table in front of me. The chairman Steve Bargeton asked who was Hollie. The standard answer is "Go google and find out the story" Maybe he did, maybe he didn't, maybe someone else from the Courier did, but when the report was published in the Courier next day there was no picture of all the candidates, so no sign of the Hollie sign, yet plenty of photo's were taken by the Courier photographer of all the candidates all together and individually.
A coincidence? As Kenny Dalgleish used to say "Maybe's Aye, Maybe's No?
