Skip to comments.COULTER RIPS MAG PHOTO 'DISTORTION'
Posted on 04/18/2005 9:09:12 AM PDT by MisterRepublican
"Why can't they just photograph conservatives straight?!" blasted this week's TIME magazine covergirl Ann Coulter.
The bestselling author and controversialist slammed magazine editors for fronting a photo of her, she claims, which is so distorted "my own mother would not even recognize me!"
The photographer, Platon, appears to have used a wide "Fisheye" lense for the cover snap, stretching Coulter's legs and feet -- while shrinking the rest of her body.

How odd, that a photo editor wouldn't know that /sarc. off
I don't see any problem with the photo.
It was not taken with a fish eye lens, it was taken from a low angle.
It shows her legs, which Ann is always showing too much of. Her face looks better than usual and she should thank God that it doesn't show her hands.
Umm... I doubt Coulter would describe herself as "fair and balanced" when it comes to her political views. And, by any standards, she is certainly radical.
It's a liberal rats eye view of a Conservative. From their petty, spiteful, mouse level,no class point of view, all conservative probably look that way to them.
I think it's great to see a picture emphasize her butt kickin' shoes. She can start with the photographer.
Her unusually high forehead in the Time pic doesn't bother you? I think the picture is distorted. I don't mind that her legs look longer, what woman would complain about having longer legs, but they did something to her head to make it elongated, as well.
Hillary says that about every photographer.
I think she looks fine. The picture shows off her lovely legs.
I didn't think it looked "bad" in the sense that they were trying to slam her for being a conservative. It just looked like a typical artsy-fartsy photo, which they could have done to anyone. IMHO.
I'll never forget the LIFE magazine cover after Nixon won in 1972. Awful!
For a celebrity, I've seen very few attractive photos of her. You can tell she's attractive, but the photos I've seen of her just aren't very good. The one you've posted is okay, but the turtleneck makes her long neck look odd, almost like an African neck ring. The Time photo is one of the better ones I've seen of her, but I could make her look better than any of the photos I've seen posted on the web.
Ann we love you for your brains and spirit!
(Now git back in back line for some more biscuits and gravy!)
Oh, those loooooooooong legs...
BTW, I went to the Time website and read the article. It was OK, all things considered. Had some interesting stories about her in it. I don't think she angry with the article, just the cover.
Does anyone know if Time is one of the excerpts-only sites? If it is not, I can post the article. It is actually quite a good read, lots of interesting Ann trivia....
Words to live by. Also, don't let a one-named dude date your daughter.
LOL! it's probably not your daughter he'd like to date.
Because their seething hatred knows no bounds. There's no such thing as fairness in their world. Their biased ideology rules over them like an iron fist.
I like the photo also, a classy lady on an equally classy
Mies van der Rohe Barcelona chair.
Waaaahhhhh, I don't like my photo. The mean ol' press is betaing up on me. Waaahhhhhh.....
When I saw it, I thought of Alice in Wonderland.
I think I'd rather see her legs in the position Clinton had his.... :-)
IF she gripes about it, she gets even more publicity, ala Drudge carrying it as the lead today. Hence, she gripes about it.
Sorry, Ann, but the mistake is yours. You posed for them, you had to know they'd mess with you somehow. Next time, make'm use a file photo. It might be twisted just as badly, but at least you won't be a partner to it.
She got an artist's treatment designed to make her look good.
I'll just have to keep on reapeating... there is no left-wing media bias...
LOL! Well, since Ann is about six feet tall, she doesn't need to wear them anyway. The pointy toe is really only beneficial for short chicks like me who try to convince themselves and everyone else we're an inch or three taller than we actually are! :)
>>>Go to the TIME cover archive and look at the the times the Hildabeast has been on it. Very flattering photography of he majesty, which should come as no surprise. 8 covers. Sycophants. >>>
Yes, they make the witch out to be Betty Crocker and get very unflattering photo for the conservative.
How soft and sweet she looks with a little meat on her bones.
That was before all the cigarettes and chardonnay!
Maybe, they should have shown her "package"
Bigger than any of the pubbie sinators or reps!
Look at that pose! It just beckons all to be drawn into her V.
For the children doncha' know!
"There is no such thing as bad publicity."
Yeah, she looks like a cross between OPzzy Osbourne and Maralyn Manson.
I think the photographer was just trying to take an interesting pic. I think it's good.
Seems to me that libs could have more to complain about the one he did of Clinton...
Well to me she tells the truth. All she does is repeat what liberals do and say about themselves, and the only thing maybe radical about her is her method of telling the truth. Like she calls the democrats the "traitor party". Of course not all of them are traitors, but 90% of them in my mind sure the hell are and that qualifies it to me as a "traitor party". Why? Because they constantly side with the enemies of the United States. She is just stating that fact as blunt as possible.
Ann is no big deal. She looks at least 5'11 and weighs 110 lbs. I'd like to see her in a bikini. The hair, the gun the conserative wit turns guys on I guess. Guys are turned on with "image", more than women. I am not too impressed with her. She is difficult to listen to.
Her nose has been redone
The deathly cold light was used on purpose. Cadaverish.
I agree with Ann. Why does TIME have to intentionally distort the photo by using a fisheye lens.
That's the first thing I thought of when I saw Ann's photo.
