To bad they show a photo of the two-seater F... :-\ 

 

Which photo are you referring to? The one in the initial post is a E flown by VFA-195.

 

The one in the link to the Syrian Su-22 shootdown is a D.

I would bet that at this point, news reports would be using "stock" photos. If they had word that an F-18 shot down the Syrian jet, they'd just find a stock photo of any F-18. We anal types will eventually find out which squadron, nose number, BuNo, and maybe even pilot(s). And eventually there will be a decal or several.
