Visual Proof That Journalism Can't Really Be Objective?
Check out these newspaper front pages from the last few days, courtesy of Poynter's Julia Moos, who writes: "Others will debate the politicization of Hurricane Sandy and its effect on
Tuesday’s election; we submit front pages that provide some interesting visual fodder for the debate."
And, indeed, newspaper editors' choice of front-page pictures of President Obama touring the New Jersey shore after Sandy is telling: from a pix, headlined "Obama Views Damage," where Obama is actually looking away from shoreline damage, to shots of the prez looking much more sympathetic, with his arms around a storm victim. Then there's this headline: "President Obama toured damage in New Jersey on Wednesday, but not in New York City."
