Skip to comments.The Atlantic should have Googled Jill Greenberg before hiring her

I dont feel sorry for The Atlantic magazine.
They are quite upset after discovering that Jill Greenberg, the left-wing photographer they hired to take photos of John McCain, is a deranged lunatic who manipulated pictures of the candidate to put him in a bad light and then posted hateful photoshops of the images on her personal website and gloated about it to the Photo District News website.
Sample of her unhinged defacing of McCains pics, which looks like something straight out of a Democratic Underground thread: (See article for photos)
Atlantic writer Jeffrey Goldberg, whose cover story was tainted by Greenbergs work, writes: Greenberg doctored photographs of McCain she took during her Atlantic-arranged shoot, which took place last month in Las Vegas. She has posted these doctored photographs on her website, which you can go find yourself, if you must. Suffice it to say that her art is juvenile, and on occasion repulsive. This is not the issue, of course; the issue is that she betrayed this magazine, and disgraced her profession.

Sorry Michelle, but who says they didn’t?
Who says they didn’t want exactly what they got?
What I don’t understand is, if she was contracted by the magazine to take photos, and the magazine had the subject (McCain) appear for the shoot, then why don’t the photos belong to the magazine?
Nice work, Jill. What a low life.
Goldberg’s complaints ring hollow to me.
It sounds more like they’re sorry her childishness got bad reviews, rather than good.
McCain will speak to any issue.
That the left is unhinged and acting badly only helps McCain/Palin.
I don’t fault McCain for interviewing with this magazine.
Not only the magazine but other professional photographers are slamming Greenberg.
I saw it online during the weekend but perhaps it was on Newsbusters. It’s worth reading.
This has backfired big time.
As the Left start to realize that they are History’s losers, all sorts of hatred, pettiness and spite will spew out. It helps fill up the emptiness of their lives.
Megan Kelly was hammering the editor of Atlantic about this very issue an hour before Michelle wrote this article.
So today we talk about the McCain pictures in Atlantic.
When do we get to talk about what Barak Obama wants to do when he is President?
How about Obama’s association with David Geffen and George Soros. If Obama is elected President will George Soros become Emperator?
This is all distraction. McCain needs to force Obama to talk about the issues.
You’re right. The Atlantic got EXACTLY what they wanted when they hired this woman.
It depends on the contract. Generally speaking, if a publisher doesn't make a specific contractual request to own the copyright, a free-lance photographer owns the copyright to their own work, and sells the rights to use the work for a specified use and a specified number of reproductions. The magazine would own the photos only if the photographer were on staff.
The crazier and more unhinged the media becomes, the better McCain’s chances. A large and increasing number of people no longer trust the Mainstream Media. They Distort, They Deride. But they are no longer able to control and spin the news in a manner acceptable to their Democrat puppet-masters, because fewer people are staying around to watch their performance when there are much more enlightening shows available elsewhere.
Nice gig, then. Get paid to take photos, have the subject delivered to you on a platter, and keep the photos to sell later.
Agreed. She's the journalistic equivalent of a suicide bomber; expected to take one for the team and go out with a bang.
I LIKE the picture of Senator McCain on the cover of Atlantic Monthly. It makes him look tough and an islamofacist’s worst nightmare. The bimbette may have thought she was harming McCain, but I think the joke is on her.
...like re-runs of Andy Griffith...
