The office photoshopped two handicapped people into the photo.
This is not The Onion or The Babylon Bee.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence used a stock photo on its annual demographic report.
It gets worse because someone photoshopped a woman in a wheelchair and a blind man into the photo.

You can download the photo, named “Portrait Of Multi-Cultural Office Staff Standing In Lobby,” on Shutterstock for free.
The press release states the “report presents key data and efforts addressing diversity and inclusion across the IC.”
The IC boasts “the percentage of minorities increased to 27 percent from 26.5 percent in 2019, the percentage of persons with disabilities increased to 11.9 percent from 11.5 percent in 2019, and the percentage of women remained the same at 39.3 percent in FY20.”
Then why not take a picture of your diverse workforce? OK, say it is normal for them to use stock photos. But why photoshop two handicapped people in it?
Can’t someone do a better photoshop job, too?
