A solid editorial

This is from Paly High’s newspaper, The Campanile. It’s an example of the staff taking a firm stand on a very relevant school issue. Note the organized outline of reasons and the concrete suggestion at the end – standard editorial form.

E-book incovenient and detrimental to learning.

Unethical cropping

A photographer was outraged at the way Newsweek cropped a photo he had taken of Dick Cheney. They also paired it with a quote Cheney made about CIA interrogations

He wrote, on the NY TImes Lens blog:

Newsweek’s objective in running the cropped version was to illustrate its editorial point of view, which could only have been done by shifting the content of the image so that readers just saw what the editors wanted them to see. This radical alteration is photo fakery. Newsweek’s choice to run my picture as a political cartoon not only embarrassed and humiliated me and ridiculed the subject of the picture, but it ultimately denigrated my profession.

See it here, with an update from the photographer about how Newsweek’s spokesperson responded.
