Skip to comments.Atlantic Mag: McCain Slandering Photographer Fired by Her Own Rep Agency
Posted on 09/18/2008 7:58:36 AM PDT by Mobile Vulgus
Jeffery Goldberg from The Atlantic Magazine is reporting that underhanded, leftist photographer Jill Greenberg has just been let go by her Representing Agency, the Vaughan Hannigan photo agency. This is a perfect example of a lesson of consequences. When Greenberg admitted that she lied and tricked John McCain so that she could manipulate his image to slander him and did so in the employ of The Atlantic Magazine, she lost any future work with that magazine for her unprofessional behavior. And now, more consequences have come her way.
No one is, of course, saying that Jill Greenberg isn't allowed to be as bigoted as she wants to be, but she should be ready to accept the consequences if she does so while acting as a representative for someone else. In this case she was representing The Atlantic Magazine when she was assigned to photograph McCain and then used her position to trick him into a situation where she could use his image for political attacks at a later date.
Goldberg reports from the inside:
The Vaughan Hannigan photo agency, which has represented the disgraced, excrement-obsessed photoshopper Jill Greenberg, has just dropped her from its client list. Bill Hannigan, who runs the agency, told me a few minutes ago that Greenberg and the agency had "different views on how to conduct business." He said he couldn't say anything more because he is "still sorting out some issues with Jill related to her contract."
Vaughan Hannigan has done the right thing, of course, and not only because it's best not to represent photographers who deceive their clients, but because the damage Greenberg has done to her fellow photographers is tremendous.
Well, Greenberg's unprofessional actions have led to the magazine saying it will no longer employ her and now her agent has also dropped her over her behavior....

Yes but she will be the heroine to all of the lefties and the poster child for victimhood.
I am shocked and surprised. I now await some aclu sniveling lawyer to sue on her behalf.
The title is factually inaccurate (not your fault), the atlantic should find editors who understand hyphenation and its uses.
I thought McCain had slandered the photog. who was fired.
Not to worry, CBS will pick up her contract
NO, the editor will probably get a bonus and a copy of your post will be framed as part of the atta-boy ceremony.
Yep she just hit the big time.
On many of the professional photog sites, she’s been trashed by most posters, as she has damaged the reputation/trust of all professionals.
This will only make her work more famous and saleable.
She won’t have a problem being picked up by another agent and gallery.
They will in fact love it. She is now a counter cultural icon and hero to the left and cultural elite.
Her prices just probably went up at least 50%.
Yeah, those fact checking copy editors were right on top of it, approving the final cover for production — Was done by who?
Well I don’t think McCain should go about slandering any photographers
You have to wonder why she was hired in the first place. She obviously hadn’t been “vetted”.
Same with me, that is specifically why I opened the thread. Note to press editors: Punctuation is your friend.
Oh, how my heart is breaking for her ... NOT!
They are no different than the remnants of the dregs that control and still inhabit the gulags of Cuba, Iran, and North Korea in their zeal to perpetuate their ideology.
Very simply, their operating motto is the time honored and tested philosophy of all fascistic tendencies: "THE ENDS JUSTIFIES THE MEANS!"
It appears Publius Forum is the headline criminal. Atlantic.com has this headline:
Jill Greenberg Dropped by Photo Agency
>>At least The Atlantic Magazine did the right thing in the end... not that they are off the hook completely!
Ah, but take a close look at the headline”
“McCain Slandering Photographer Fired by Her Own Rep Agency”
Makes it sound like McCain is slandering her and she is an innocent victim of the evil Republicans.
Even when they apologize, they don’t.
