Watch Your Back
Given my weeks of hammering about the New York Times political photo coverage, my occasional guest blogger, Karen, alerted me to this shot from today’s NYTimes on-line. It’s the first shot I’ve seen in the Times (at least since the debates) that captures the thin-skinned Bush we saw on television.
While doling out credit to the NYTimes for publishing a more critical shot of Bush, it must be noted that the photo comes from an outside agency. To date, the two photographers they’ve had assigned to the candidates, Ting-Li Wang and Steven Crowley, have been incapable of capturing anything close to Bush’s true nature.
