AP photo editor jumps the shark with Mitt hit pic

October 9, 2012

They really are a bunch of insufferable bastards. Obama gets a halo, but Romney is made into a joke. I’m so sick of this bullshit from our media.

A pic of Mitt Romney bending over, while a seemingly astonished schoolgirl stands behind him, mouth agape.

The photograph, posted Monday by The Associated Press for all to see, has since surged across the Internet. The candidate riding a wave of confidence from last week’s debate performance was suddenly made, pardon, the butt of jokes.

So was it a cheap shot?

    What you said times 2, Dan. smh. If I was her parent I would be giving the AP what for, for sure.

    It would almost be a crime not to share that picture. As long as no one allows it to change their mind and realize that it was either photoshoped or edited somehow, plus that it was the little girl, unintentionally of course, was the one making that face so if anyone is to blame… it’s the little girl.

      If anyone’s to blame it’s the girl?

      For what?

      The photo editor went through hundreds of photos to find one that made Romney look as bad as he could find, and he thought this was funny because of the expression on a kid’s face. By putting her face in front of a nation full of extreme lefty kooks, they knowingly put her in for ridicule. That’s not her fault. All she did was engage in the normal range of facial expressions at an event that the AP recorded and cherry picked.

      The AP’s editorial decisions are infantile.

    Think that’s bad? Just Google “Romney packing fudge” and look at the photo that comes up.
