The web was buzzing over a photo from the New York Times story on the recent Selma anniversary march. Many accused the paper of cropping out former President George W. Bush, who was out of frame to the left of the president. But NYT says they did no such thing.
Photographer Doug Mills wrote: “I did not even send this frame because it’s very wide and super busy and Bush is super-overexposed because he was in the sun and Obama and the others are in the shade.”
Do you buy it? Deneen Borelli, Director of Outreach at FreedomWorks, said something relevant about the photographer’s “super-overexposed”
excuse reason for not including Bush.
“One word: technology. They could have made it happen. This was the front page of the New York Times. They could have made it happen.”
What do you think?
Borelli also talked about the media bias in the story itself, particularly the inclusion of what happened in Ferguson, Missouri (as if a suspect assaulting a police officer and wrestling over his weapon and ending up dead had anything to do with black Americans fighting for equal treatment back in the day, but that’s liberals for you).
