What's Wrong With This Picture?
Listen, I think Michele Bachmann is two cylinders short of an engine, but these kinds of selections by a news magazine like Newsweek are a little out of bounds, in my view. I mean, this is Newsweek and not some harebrained Indiana blog.
Ok, I've actually used photos that may have made people look silly at times, but I don't consider what I do here high journalism. It's opinion. I have the right, as the editor of this blog, to select pictures to illustrate a point.
I'm not a major magazine with thousands of subscribers that puts myself out there as some journalistic exercise. There is a difference, and I'm willing to continue to debate anyone on this.
So, I think Newsweek was just wrong for choosing that particular photo out of no doubt several that were taken in the session. It's not a candid shot. These folks knew what they were doing to begin with, and they did it.
This is why the "lamestream" media claims have legs!
