Party’s Over?

I’ve been hard on the NYTimes for their election photo coverage, which has tended to give Bush a free ride. Why, at this point, however, would the trend suddenly shift. Reverse bias?

More likely, with strong vibrations in the air about the mood of the electorate, this shot is just foreshadowing real events.

    I wouldn’t give them so much credit. The print edition this morning had two front-page photos of the candidates, both happy friendly faces amidst crowds, but the Bush photo was on top and dead center, and the Kerry photo was below, and a portion of it ended up below the fold.

    Bastards.
