DON’T TRUST THE MEDIA (CONT’D): “Controversial celebrity photographer Jill Greenberg, a self-professed ‘hard-core Dem,’ deliberately took a series of unflattering shots of Republican nominee John McCain for the current cover of The Atlantic – and then bragged about it on a blog.” The Atlantic has a brand that most magazines envy. But recent behavior is putting it at risk. I guess it’s gone from bring your own camera, to bring your own photographer. The Atlantic’s editor, James Bennet, — who I know somewhat and think is an honest guy — says they don’t vet photographers for their politics, and they shouldn’t. But this kind of pettiness and unprofessionalism is absolutely beyond the pale. Sadly, it’s marked much of the media this election cycle.
As Andrew Breitbart said on PJTV the other night, you can hardly overstate the extent to which Big Media and the Democratic Party are one and the same these days.
