    AFP... niceeeee work there.

    Credulous photojournalism of the day Updates

    Look at the bullets that the woman is holding.



    Now read the caption:
    An elderly Iraqi woman shows two bullets which she says hit her house
    following an early coalition forces raid in the predominantly Shiite Baghdad suburb of Sadr City.(AFP/Wissam al-Okaili)
    The only way those two bullets hit anything is if someone threw them or launched them from a slingshot. They’re still pristine, still in their shells. And whoever wrote the caption obviously doesn’t know enough about firearms to know that. Either that, or as the tipster who sent this to me says, they’re actively helping create negative media stories against the US.

    Update: Uncle J over at Blackfive may have found a media tour at work.

    Update: Bob Owens looks into the photographer and his chosen subjects. AFP’s photo editors are passing off obviously staged photos as legitimate journalism. And Andrew Sullivan is passing one of them off to his readers as bona fide news.
    I also like how the text formatting is such that if you did not use the scroll bar you could be led to believe that 175 people were slaughtered by coalition forces... presumably by these same types of non fired bullets...

    Wonder if these bullets are from the same troops that Obama is claiming to be bombing civilians in Afghanistan..

    Magic Bullets Discovered in Sadr City by AFP Photographer

    To make it even tastier, there’s another one from July 10, 2007, featuring the same woman and another unfired round:

    Seattle Times news editors cheered Rove resignation news

    As a former Seattle Times employee, I’m only surprised that they didn’t dance on the table as well. David Postman blogs:

    A newsroom reprimand at The Times

    Posted by David Postman at 03:26 PM

    Seattle Times Executive Editor Dave Boardman wrote today in one of his morning notes to staff that there had been “an awkward moment at yesterday’s news meeting.” That’s the meeting where editors and other staff from throughout the newsroom talk about the stories planned for the next day’s paper. Boardman wrote in “Dave’s Raves (and the occasional rant)”

    When word came in of Karl Rove’s resignation, several people in the meeting started cheering. That sort of expression is simply not appropriate for a newsroom.

    It sounds like a conservative’s parody of how a news meeting would be run. (MM: Snort.) I wasn’t there, but I’ve talked to several people who were. It was only a couple of people who cheered and they, thankfully, are not among the people who get a say in news play. But obviously news staff shouldn’t be cheering or jeering the day’s news, particularly as Boardman points out, “when we have an outside guest in the room.”
    Wonder who that was?

    Business as usual at the NYT...


    NYTimes: Bush Bashing Book Reviewer Not Identified as Obama Campaign Adviser

    Back on July 29th, the New York Times published an article that was ostensibly supposed to be a book review even as the first half of the long piece was an anti-Bush political rant. The byline was credited to Samantha Power, who is, as the Times somewhat benignly defined her, a "professor of the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard." But, Power is far from a mere lefty Harvard professor because in the past she was a duly paid member of Senator Obama's staff and still to this day she is a key foreign policy adviser to his campaign for president. In fact, when Obama's shallow foreign policy experience was attacked in the press recently, she was the one who wrote a long apologia that was sent to media outlets to staunch the bleeding of the Obama campaign. Why the Times did not fully identify her as an interested party in a political campaign and instead painted her as just a "professor" is hard to understand.

    So, why did the New York Times publish the work of a key adviser to a Democratic presidential candidate's foreign policy team without telling the reading public that this "professor" was a partisan operative and not just an uninterested, unbiased reviewer of books? Even Amitai Etzioni, a blogger for the left leaning Huffington Post, wondered why.

    Shoot, I wouldn't be suprised if lots of conservatives are happy to see Rove go too.....

    Re: No MSM bias to see here... move along..

    Any why do our news rooms lean left?? Perhaps because the colleges that these reporters get churned out from lean left equally...

    The New College Try



    Based on data available electronically from the Federal Election Commission on July 30, 2007. Includes donations from individuals and PACs to federal candidates, parties and committees. Nonprofit organizations, which most colleges and universities are, cannot form PACs, so the money CRP associates with them is solely from employees and their families.
    Not to worry... I'm sure that the colleges and their professors do not let their personal leanings drift into their classrooms... really... keep saying it till you believe it..

    Typical leftist MSM loon.. hand caught in cookie jar... stroke your intellictual "superiority" of those who report your activity. Biased MSM reporting.. so easy a caveman can do it... better...

    Columnist who cheered Rove’s resignation in the newsroom blames loss of media credibility on, um, bloggers

    Good stuff. Usually when they sneer at bloggers they preface it with lip service about the theoretical virtues of citizen journalism or nutroots-powered politics, just to prove that they’re populists at heart. Not here. Note the choice of metaphor: you can practically smell the filth as the riffraff befouls the white marble Hall of Liberal Justice.

    Times Executive Editor David Boardman was dismayed at our outburst.

    In an internal memo to the newsroom, he wrote, “A good newsroom is a sacred and magical place in which we can and should test every assumption, challenge each other’s thinking, ask the fundamental questions those in power hope we will overlook.

    “… It is about independent thinking and sound, facts-based journalism,” he continued, “the difference between what we do and the myopic screed that is passed off as ‘advocacy journalism’ these days.”

    Not buying that? I can’t blame you. The hallowed halls of journalism that I was privileged to enter more than 20 years ago are looking more and more like the New York subway. The walls covered in bloggers’ scrawl, the platform crowded with any yahoo with a camera and an open mike. All are headed to your computer screen or television for the 15 seconds you’ll give them before moving on to the next hot spot.

    That’s not how we do things at this newspaper.

    Here, every morning, some 20 smart, educated, well-read and diverse people gather around a table and talk. We offer opinions on how stories were approached, written and presented. We say what worked, what didn’t, and how we can do it better next time.
    A little smarter, a little better, a little braver, a little more ethical even when they refuse to correct erroneous stories or donate overwhelmingly to one party while politely declining to mention the fact. America’s priesthood, baby — the intercessor you dumb, ill educated, unread, monolithic rabble need.

    Exit question: Why not just cop to the bias so that you can cheer all you want?
    Courage....

    Silky: Coulter’s a “she-devil”!

    What do you make of "the role of trash talk" Mushmouth? Bad when Coulter does it.. okey~dokey when you and your band of useful idiots at MSNBC do it? Of course.... hypocrites are a funny lot indeed.

    Chris Matthews Denounces 'Bum' Karl Rove

    Matthews: "Can President Bush think without the man they call his brain? What about all those great ideas like dividing the country over Iraq and leaving New Orleans to drop into the sea? A country without Karl Rove calling the shots? Let's fear for the Republic. Let's play Hardball."
    Matthews: "Tonight's debate on Hardball: Should Congress be able to force Karl Rove to talk? Now that he's leaving the White House, that's the Hardball debate, he's gonna go out and make a fortune on the lecture circuit. Do you have to pay to get the truth from Karl Rove?"
    Matthews referring to Valerie Plame case: "Yeah but Bush, the President said, that 'anyone of my people involved with leaking this will be taken care of.' Did he, is that what he meant by today's ceremony, the bear hug and everything? Was that being taken care of? And, I mean, I've never seen a staff aide be signed-off on at the presidential helicopter with such majesty. It was almost regal today, like he was knighting the guy. And, and he said he was going to take care of this bum, anybody that leaked in the CIA case. Well this is how he took care of him. He knighted the guy."

    Edward Wyatt / New York Times: A CBS Reality Show Draws a Claim of Possible Child Abuse — The ads promoting "Kid Nation," a new reality show coming to CBS next month, extol the incredible experience of a group of 40 children, ages 8 to 15, who built a sort of idealistic society in a New Mexico ghost town, free of adults.
