ABC News crops Dennis Kucinich out of group photo

ABC News posted a photo of all the Democratic presidential candidates, but they cut Dennis Kucinich out of the photo!

Before (with Dennis Kucinich)

source: Yahoo News

After (without Dennis Kucinich)

Oddly enough ABC News kept Kucinich in the caption, even though they cropped him out of the image.

source: ABC News

And to make matters worse, ABC News even messed around with the poll. Dennis Kucinich was winning the poll, so they took the poll down, and put the exact same question back up with the results reset! Read more at: Wembleyhead’s post.

Information Literacy – understanding the difference between reliable, accurate, scholarly sources and popular media. This is a perfect example of what I like to show the kids (college freshmen). So, basically it is for my “Lies of the mainstream media” class!! (and I figured you were talking about the post, and not me or my classes)

They also could have picked a photo that didn’t have wide-angle distortion. Clinton is horribly stretched. Question: If Barack Obama came out with a face like Jabba the Hutt, would the media run it? Me thinketh not.

“Clinton is horribly stretched”.. funny, she’s the only one that appears to be ‘distorted’ 😛 (i kid.. kinda) abc has modified that page, and they’re using a different image. this one with no cropping and no weight distortion.

There was actually a third poll preceding the debate titled “Who will win the democratic debate.” Mike Gravel was in the top three on that poll before it disappeared. Little did you know you are in the Matrix…
