Creative Commons and Attribution

Last week, I received an interesting email from someone asking me to change the attribution on one of the pictures I had used. 

Here's the article:  http://www.maxsons.org/2014/01/17/american-culture-and-the-media 
Here's the image I used:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/87735223@N02/11359245033/

All of my own images are published with a creative commons license and I'm totally for the idea that the person gets to control what happens with their stuff; however, I think it is a step too far to use that to drive traffic to a website as opposed to a simple attribution.
