Yes Barry/11 definitely some incompetence at work among the board censors -- no job for a smirky columbia j school intern!
Lets's Moose comments seems a little off topic on this one, but there the comments remain Meanwhilethe first comment on Workforhire was deleted right away.Oh well segment is long overSee ya Monday!
Just because Moose eating Alaskans are dumb enough to elect Ms. Teen Ohio to their highest executive position, doesn't mean Americans have to take a chance on this Bimbo. That's Bimbo with a capital B. The media is so PC that no one's going to be as blunt as that. That's because the media has no cajones. Everyones waiting for an SNL skit. Every journalist thinks they're brilliant for make the SNL skit comment. But no journalist has any guts to show this broad for what she's really not. Vote for McCain hope he doesnt die is not an option. Palin makes Paris Hilton look like a particle accelerator scientist.
This is an amazing example of what a prof photo-journ can do: Serena beating Venus. Sibling rivalary captured?
Brian you must know a good journalist from an "amateur" and what is story structure - the same applies for pictorial structure (composition/content) you just use a different language. And it's true everywhere that visuals are "k-marted" - how ironic given the current art bubble in other visual arts.
Great example of professional photo-journ: thisparticular victory shot of Serena beating Venus-incredible! Sibling rivalry captured?

Everyone is now a witness. It's becoming a watered-down medium. Too many 'photographers'.
Not everyone can play the piano.. not everyone can take pictures.
Don't sign work for hire agreements.It is like herding cats but if Photogs can say "no thanks"with one voice all would benifit.But alas, most photogs are so desperate...
Photo j is evolving, not a high water mark for Photo J right now.However, Photo J was never about random "lucky shots"It was and is about the story. You have to spend some time to get the full view. Can you get by with less? Sure, but it suffers.The business has changed and opportunitiesalways show up during times of change.
That was a very offensive remark! "Red-headed stepchild"? You should be smarter and more sensitive.
"Bad stock news" yesterday:http://www.PDNPulse.com/2008/09/back-to-back-ba.html
If a bomb goes off in a public square, everyone thanks the technology gods for passing out the tools of democratized journalism -- the uploadable picture. But that's news porn.
What's missing is the story that led up to the bomb. That's journalism. And (aside from the NYT, which fired 750 workers last wk) that's gone.
The slide that began in the 80s with the transference of media to shareholders is ending w the purchase and gutting of media by private equity.
An army of digital, mysteriously underwritten slackers uploading pictures of them picnicing or getting arrested for riding their bikes illegally probably is not bringing smile to the faces of our founding fathers. Ask a J school prof at Columbia what they make! (FAR less than a garbageman).
But China, Russia, Fox and other enemies of the freedom to think straight are quite pleased I'm sure.
