Here's the front page for the New York Times's national edition, the day after Paul Ryan's speech at the Republican National Convention:
Peter Roskam, the Illinois Republican congressman and deputy majority whip, said the front page makes Ryan look like the "son of Satan."

Forget the “Son of Satan” stuff; apparently someone thought it was “artistic,” but it just comes off as a terrible photo.
LOL...what?? No halos or glowing orbs for a Republican?
I guess I am more surprised that people are surprised by this depiction of Ryan by the NYT.
I think, as they say, spell the name right, and nothing else matters—LOL!
Very deliberate. Very intentional. Very telling.
Oh FREEPERS....Come on. If you look at that, I don’t get that impression at all. The way this propaganda story is I thought that was going to be the title. Too sensative for such a dishonest story.
NYT's Abramson rebuts Brisbane charge ....""In our newsroom we are always conscious that the way we view an issue in New York is not necessarily the way it is viewed in the rest of the country or world. I disagree with Mr. Brisbane's sweeping conclusions [Progressive worldview 'bleeds through' the Times] ," Abramson told POLITICO Saturday night.
"I agree with another past public editor, Dan Okrent, and my predecessor as executive editor, Bill Keller, that in covering some social and cultural issues, the Times sometimes reflects its urban and cosmopolitan base," she continued."
IMO, it seems to try to portray Ryan being pushed forward by dark men in the background, pulling strings for dastardly purposes.
F the DNCp...
Oh my God! Somebody ought to have brought it to the attention of the New York Times the presence of all those anonymous, shadowy figures behind Ryan. I mean, what if it turns out that they are ......... corporate bundlers!
$2.50 a copy for that fish wrapper? Good grief.
I think they wanted to run a photoshopped picture of him beheading a senior citizen, but they were worried about offending their Muslim friends.
So.. If Obama had a son, he’d look like Paul Ryan??
I took some photography courses in college many years ago... I would have been kicked out for submitting something that was composed like that. I have accidentally taken photos of my feet that are better composed.
They are thinking "all those years of planning and lying and scheming...for what?"
Make no mistake, this is war...only the shooting hasn't yet started.
Even if so, it doesn’t matter.
Nobody subscribes to the NYT outside of NYC any more.
