The picture and it's associated story are usually from another source than the text of the item shown. Who associates them ... an automated process, or a human? I'm betting that this particular snafoo was just human clerical error.
I suppose if the displayed story has no picture they pull one from another website that has one.  It happens often. I don't think there are humans involved. Headlines are the hype of headline-writers. That the picture doesn't match the story is not a suprise.
