I'm sure that this photographer picked the best photo he could find from his camera that takes multiple shots. (sarcasm)

I guess it's all in the eyes of the beholder. I actually like this photo. I think it makes the president look forceful, and that he's passionate about what he's saying.

Actually, I like that photo. It shows someone really wrapped up with his audience and with what he's telling them. But I can also see that a liberal would probably view it as that dumb, crazy, hateful idiot Bush, and I have no doubt that's why AP selected it for publication.

My brother is both a photographer and cameraman.

He pointed the photo out to me.

Called it a disgrace because photographers take hundreds of shots.

To chose the one that makes him look like a chimp is a clear jab by a detestable lib.

In his words, no professional would disrespect the President with a throw away shot that is unflattering.

The photo isn't disgraceful, but I think they probably picked one of the least flattering that they had at their disposal.

This footnote shows the media agenda with photos. They publish the least flattering images they can possibly find. In the case of Condi below, they actually MODIFIED the image to make her look demonic.

I don't have any problem with this photo, or any other that shows the President engaged and forceful. The Chief Executive is supposed be an involved leader, somebody who gets points across to the people. GWB has been pretty shy about that, to the detriment of his agenda. So I'm very pleased to see him get animated. Presidents who don't connect with their people are left in the dust.

As for him looking like a "chimp", sorry, I don't see that. What I see is a man making a point. Must be eye of the beholder that sees anything less human. I enjoy GWB's speeches, and I enjoy his interactive repartee even more. I say, "CARRY ON!"

Come on now, you have to give them the benefit of the doubt. They're collapsing so fast maybe it was a cost cutting measure. After all, for the really GOOD, respectable, well-posed picture of Bush, that silly photographer wanted a whole $3!

Maybe the AP settled on this one for a whole 10 cents. You know, giving them the benefit of the doubt as a cost cutting measure that is!

They have about twenty to choose from. It's no accident.

Now that Hillary has been called mean, they airbrush all her wrinkles and have these shots of her looking like a mannequin. It's hillarious the micro-managing of bias these commie clowns take part in.

Well, it's not a lot different in terms of his facial expression (which I still think is fine because he's obviously energized and making a point). But I can't wait until somebody captions it with something like, "Look, honey, size doesn't matter, but if you're asking, it's about this big."

AP biased?

Nope, don't believe it for a millisecond.

Left wing radical activist advocates is much more like it.

"Bias" is nothing compared with "activism".

AP is the Democrats Attack Dog and they have been consistently attacking President Bush with their choice of published pictures for years now.

They take many dozens of pictures at an event and all the ones that make President Bush look smart and Presidential get tossed in the garbage while all they pick from the few unflattering ones left for release to the public.

And it is not just a matter of if the AP is politically biased. It has been exposed that they have a homosexual agenda that they try to advance by filing fake news reports. Which probably proves when you get right down to it that they are angry homosexuals who have a personal ax to grind against President Bush because of his religious beliefs which do not advance the homosexual agenda (see below).


STOCKHOLM, May 10, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A US researcher has called to task the Associated Press for misrepresenting a scientific report on homosexuality. On Tuesday, May 9, the AP ran a story saying that a group of Swedish researchers had evidence showing that the brains of lesbians "react differently to sex hormones than those of heterosexual women".

These findings, AP concluded, "add weight to the idea that homosexuality has a physical basis and is not learned behaviour". A key plank of the homosexual political movement's agenda is that the condition is physical or genetic in origin and therefore cannot be changed, treated or controlled and must be accepted as normal.

SNIP
Dr. Warren Throckmorton, a researcher and Professor of Psychology at Grove City College, found AP's assertions suspect. He wrote to Dr. Ivanka Savic, the leader of the Swedish team at the Stockholm Brain Institute, who confirmed his suspicions. She wrote that AP's conclusion is "incorrect and not stated in the (research) paper." In fact, Dr. Savic confirms that in her team's paper, she specified learning as a possible answer to the cause of homosexual inclinations.
