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.

Archives About Staff BagNews is dedicated to visual politics, media literacy & the analysis of news images.

An Almost Religious Love Of Political Sport

Wh-Winterolympicslogo Copy

Maybe it has something to do with all the recent talk of cartoons.  It could also stem from a desire to shift gears a bit after posting more provocative imagery.  Or, it could just be the fact the Winter Olympics opened last night and I noticed Laura Bush in attendance.  In any case, I started thinking that this site has gotten very serious lately; many of you have probably never seen “the real BAG”; and I fondly recall making light of BushCo in my illustrated way during the Summer Games two years ago (example 1, 2, 3).

So, I’m just giving you a heads up that I’m “unfolding” BAGnews this week in honor of the Winter Games.  Before doing so, however, it seemed appropriate to “brand” the occasion first.  (I mean, that’s how Rove does it, right?)
