This may be true but be aware it brings legal issues to light. You MUST have your model sign a release. These photos could end up on your grocery store newsstand - if your model finds it, and you don't have a signed agreement with them, they could easily take you to the cleaners.
Using the excuse of the image being a 'newsworthy' event, and as such not requiring a model release, is sticky at best. In other words, it better really really be newsworthy.
