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.
That's why hyphens are so handy!
I suspect Larry Flynt is hiring her as we blog.
Jill is a bigot. And if the Atlantic Magazine can see that, I'm keeping my subscription.
A bigot’s a bigot. I don’t think she’ll be a heroine except to other bigots. Or haters. Or both.
“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...”
There’s the rub, she was representing The Atlantic Magazine at the time and not herself. She gave THEM a black eye and cost THEM future business and advertisers. It’s when client reputation and money get jeopardized that suddenly these antics carry adult-size consequences.
Remember “The Reagans”, you can moon the public but don’t get your clients mixed up in it. You cost the suits money and suddenly you’re not so funny anymore.
Having never heard of this cretin before, I Google image searched her name. There is something very sick and twisted busy at work in that head of hers.
Or ABC's Charlie Gibson.
Perhaps, but my bet is that Keith Olberman is looking to team with her to form a new MSNBC "Investigative Reporting" team.
I think that is what I said.
She was hired to shoot photos for a client. She probably violated the terms of her hired shoot by additionally shooting images for herself and manipulating the work she did for Atlantic Monthly as a new work (wouldn’t AM own the publishing right on that photo?).
She engaged in defamation of character and probably violated the release she provided Senator McCain. If she did not have a release from him, she is probably in a bad place legally to engage in such tactics.
Bet she wouldn’t pull this s*** on Warren Beatty or Sean Penn.
The agency fired her so now Atlantic ALSO says they won’t hire her. Earlier the editor was defending her.
Too late for the flip flop to mean crap.
Compare and contrast with the outrage over Time Magazine darkening OJ's picture on their cover.
She’ll probably be hired to “do” the first Michael Moore bookcover about the McCain presidency.
...and the left uses it well to print misleading statements and then claim it was just a punctuation error. I don't believe for a minute that the editor did not know what the interpretation would be.
Most photographers photoshop their works.
And most liberal photographers specifically try for “bad” photos of Republicans/conservatives. And most editors try for scowling photos for the newspaper.
Remember USA Ptooey’s photoshop of Condi?
Until photographers spit on ALL photographers who engage in this slander of conservatives, they are just huffing about the work it could cost them.
Digital fauxtography has replaced traditional film (and negative) photography. Now they willfully engage in Communist photo manipulation tricks at every turn.
What Greenberg did is something like a little kid does. Which is the level where the emotional and reasoning ability of most libs lies.
