does the print version have a caption, and if so, what is it??

This is a "red-handed" catch; the print version is cropped very distinctly--it eliminates the proper context, and the lie is supported by the caption on p.35:

DEMON AND IDOL
Protestors blast Coulter at the G.O.P. Convention in New York City last year, above left. She addresses the Conservative Politidcal Action Conference in Wasbhington in February (sic)
Note: the entire point of the caption would have been destroyed unless the photo was distorted. Let's hear some outrage!

the "Ann addresses CPAC" caption is refering to another picture, correct?
also, are you saying that Time misspelled both "Politidcal" and "Wasbhington"?

argh...sorry.
typing on laptop.
They didn't have a period at end. the typos are my own, from not realizing the spell check hadn't actually gone through.

There were two photos...the CPAC was a separate photo, yes.

ha ha. thanks. glad to know Time can at least spell.
that's too funny though - cropping just under "communists for Kerry" - they just loved that poster so much they were determined to show it.

This WAS used in the print article. But they cropped it!!! They cut it off just below communistsforkerry.com. You can't tell it's a pro-Coulter sign. You can't see the "Criminals for Gun Control" at all! Our "objective" media at work again.

So much the better.

In a future book, Ann Coulter can use that cropped photo and juxtapose it with the uncropped photo to demonstrate how Time Magazine used the editing of photos for propaganda purposes just as the Soviets once did.

The Commissar Vanishes..............Photographs can lie. ...............They certainly do in the Soviet Union from 1929 to 1953, the years of Joseph Stalin's dictatorial rule. Stalin's agents routinely arrest and kill as "enemies of the people" anyone who disagrees with his politics. Communist Party workers then try to remove any trace of these people from the photographic archives, and so from the media. ...................... The Commissar Vanishes exhibition explores this censored history. By the 1930s Communist "truth" circulates worldwide in party approved books. With airbrush or ink spot, the photo censors work quietly. But despite their power, they ultimately fail. The images expose decades of photographic lies. It's a stark visual tour through a society where freedom is not an option -- the culture of control that goes on to create the Berlin Wall.

just thought of something - the two pictures ("protesters" and CPAC speaking) were meant to illustrate "Demon and Idol."

in other words, the protest picture was only meant to show Ann as a "Demon." (the "Idol" refers to the CPAC picture.)

So Time fixed the problem on the web site by changing "Demon" to "Idol." now I get it.

TIME Magazine editors, are you trying to be the Dan Rather of the print media?

Nice going!

We will have to remember to bring this up, over-and-over, as we examine Time's credentials during the next couple of election cycles.

Unrelated, the Time editors managed to find an exquisitely softened photo of Barbara Boxer in the same issue (makes her look 90 yrs younger.) The photo is as gooshie as the 10 softball questions for the intellectually challenged senator.

Yeah. . .but her editors surely did. . .and they screwed up.

Miss Coulter doesn't need to wait for her next book to use this blatant attempt to mislead their readership. She can use it now, in her public appearances.

And we can use Time's big screw-up at the D.C. Chapter's 7th Annual Freep of the White House Correspondents Association Dinner, on April 30th.

The WHCA, remember them? They're the ones who screamed bloody murder when they found out that Jeff Gannon used a day pass, a nom de plume, and White House press releases to write his reports from the White House Press Room; and he wasn't a "professional" like the MSM is. hahahaha

Freepin' Time at the White House Correspondents dinner should be a nice piece of work.

Since TIME cropped the photos in their print editions, their misrepresentation is deliberate -- not just a screw-up.

How stupid they are! The people at Time responsible for having this picture posted probably belong to Communists for Kerry. Morons!

Did a quick google on Katja Heinemann.

&&

I suspect that she was just the photographer and not responsible for how the picture was used.

"...to demonstrate how Time Magazine used the editing of photos for propaganda purposes..."

Oh c'mon. It's one photo in one article that just got cropped so they could fit it on the page. They aren't some political instrument trying to influence people. they're just getting the news out. /sarcasm

(Just noticed my tagline again - seems to fit well with this discussion!)

This made the magazine, BTW. Here:

BUT time carefully cut out the "Communists for Kerry," "Criminals for Gun Control," and "Liberating Iraqi Children from Tyranny is Costing too Much," presumably in a Dan Ratheresque effort to create a false impression that these were actual protestors.

Rather pathetic.

Yeah, for TIME, if the truth doesn't fit the preconceived notion...



...change the truth.
