No other site reviews and critiques news images as well as publishes original photography — all in the name of helping you become a sharper “visual consumer.” Are you bombarded by powerful images from the world of news, culture and social media? Sign up for our “Week in Re-View” and let us help unpack them for you. Other sites read the words. We read the pictures.

CBS Scares


Oh, you mean CBS Cares!  …Well, you could have fooled me.

The question is, are we looking at an unwitting design oversight (although you would think these guys would be more visually acute than this).  Or, is this really a cheap (quasi-) subliminal maneuver to scare up more site traffic?  (Strangely, there is not a whit of advertising in this special section, although it is full of short health PSA’s by almost every TV star in the CBS line-up.)
