It wouldn't be a US Soldier, al-Reuters would post a pic of a foreign "Freedom Fighter" in Iraq fighting the "occupating American forces". *spit*

Let's see, Kerry is a sportsman/statesman, Moore is a gracious winner/talented film director, and Bush is a bumbling fool. Yeah, you are right. No bias here.

OH - well that picture is surely the picture of the year though I would agree the President qualifies for at least ONE of the pictures of the year.........one of dozens.

There is a picture somewhere in the ether of him after an Israeli missile hit his wheelchair. Brains were out of the bucket as I recall.

I liked that one also. I think I counted six or seven pictures of the President: The umbrella one, the Oval office phone call, this one, two with other heads of state. Maybe one other. What a tribute by Reuters to our President! /sarcasm

On the other hand there were I believe 7 pictures of the President of Motion Picture Association, Jack Valenti. So they do like to show "Presidents".....

Sorry, Reuters, but you lose again. There are more "pictures of the year" in FR's Daily Dose than Reuters put in their selection here....but no surprise.

Well, if the photos of John Kerry are intended as funny pictures of the year, I'd go for that. Of course, we here on FR could supply a boatload of funny Kerry pictures.

This juvenile tactic is familiar to anyone who has seen the movie Mr. Smith Goes To Washington. The media is still a pack of laughing jackals manufacturing "news".

Goebbels would be proud. So would Uncle Joe Stalin.

He's dead, isn't he? I seem to remember his head half blown off and him lying in a morgue.

That should have been one of the photos of the year.

God forgive me.
