flickr attribution

Looks like the fine folks over at the Consumerist.com are using images from Flickr without attribution as spots for their articles. Ben Popken claims it is "Transformative means fair use." but is that really the case? He’s basically just taking the image and slapping it onto his page. He’s actually said "Credit is more trouble than its worth"

Is this really a matter of fair use? It doesn’t seem like it to me. Anyone else peeved by this? What can be done?

Gawker and consumerist are a little too big and popular just to brush this off as "oh, it’s just a small website, it doesn’t matter too much."
