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 and the analysis of news images.

I am deeply thankful to each and everyone who has joined me and taken the BAGnewsNotes mission to heart.

* To Al, who may be investing the bulk of his prodigious talent at TPM these days but still remains a key architect behind the success of BNN (and an incredible partner to cover a convention with)

* To Ida, Cara, Chris, Terri and Karen

* To Alan, Nina, Lori and Zoriah

* To Stephen, Tim, Mario, Erin, Denise and Craig

* To John, Loret, Bob, Michael and Nate

* To Sara, Leo and Steven

* To the broader readership, with a special nod to those of you who supply me with all the wonderfully helpful tips and takes

* And especially, to a simply stunning group of reader-discussants who, on a daily basis, have made the comments here a “must read” for anyone interested in visual politics

I don’t know how to thank you all except to say that, with your continued engagement, The BAG — over the next twelve months — is going to become a broader, richer and certainly more collective endeavor than I could ever have imagined.

A joyous holiday to all!

– Michael
