that is often used by media, and as the 'Getty' caption for it explains:

COLLEGE STATION, TX - SEPTEMBER 26: A detail view of the Southeastern Conference logo with all 13 member universities is seen during a press conference for the Texas A&M Aggies accepting an invitation to join the Southeastern Conference on September 26, 2011 in College Station, Texas. (Photo by Aaron M. Sprecher/Getty Images)

So, it's not part of some conspiracy against MU, but it's unfortunate (and possibly deliberate in some cases) that the media still use this outdated stock photo in many of their articles. It wouldn't surprise me at all if some of the "old guard" SEC media prefer this image because it omits MU.
