  • Horsemaning Dominates as Next Level of Planking (PHOTOS)

    "Horsemaning," or fake beheading, involves posing two people so that they appear to be a single body with a detached head -- and is a revival of a photography fad popular in the 1920s. It is thought that the name comes from the Headless Horseman, an evil character from Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." Horsemaning is currently experiencing a revival and has become a Facebook sensation like planking, owling or cone-ing. Horsemaning requires two individuals, one laying with their head back and hidden and the other exposing only their head in the picture. If done correctly, horsemaning produces...

    When the coffins of the fallen Navy SEALS came back to US soil, the Pentagon and the White House closed the event to the press.That's understandable. After all, the Bush administration made similar restrictions for such ceremonies, although Obama overturned the policy.The press complied as well, but when the White House released a photo yesterday of President Obama saluting the coffins at the ceremony, they raised their eyebrows.When Associated Press reporter Ben Feller asked about the photo today at the White House Press briefing, Carney answered:

    The buzz about Michele Bachmann's crazy eyes photo on the cover of Newsweek refused to go away on Tuesday, a day after the magazine came out. Editor-in-chief of Newsweek and The Daily Beast Tina Brown defended the photo on Twitter. Her one-line response was simply: 'Michele Bachmann’s intensity is galvanizing voters in Iowa right now and Newsweek’s cover captures that.'

    Every now and then, a treasure is unearthed not by archaeologists digging in the ground, but by historians and others seeking information among the stacks of books in a library. Writer and analyst Lenny Ben David was doing exactly that when he came across a massive Library of Congress photo archive of life in Palestine, circa early 1900s. Prior to its rebirth as a commonwealth, the lands of the State of Israel were all referred to as Palestine by the British. Ben David, a former diplomat and lobbyist, writes on his blog, “As I skimmed through the pictures, one theme...

    Weeping, grief-stricken mourners today are pouring into the Harlem home of a vivacious 16-year-old girl gunned down in a senseless bloodbath at a Brooklyn beach where thousands of kids had gathered to enjoy a hot and sunny day off from school. High schooler Tysha Jones had been frolicking at Brighton Beach and joking and laughing with friends on the boardwalk when she was caught in a senseless hailstorm of bullets fired into the youthful crowd around 5:20 p.m. yesterday. She died later at Coney Island Hospital.

    The picture at right isn't something you see every day, and it's something there'll only be one more chance to capture: a Space Shuttle launch photographed from an in-flight passenger jet. Stefanie Gordon shot this image of the Space Shuttle Endeavour's launch with her iPhone as her plane descended for a landing. The shot itself is a rare enough event, but what happened next was an eye-opener for the photographer. According to Mashable, within a few hours of uploading the launch pics to Twitter from her iPhone, Stephanie was getting phone calls from ABC, CNBC and the BBC. Her...

    I honestly don't get this. Why in the world does Obama think that showing a photo of a dead OBL is akin to "spiking the football" and will only do harm, no good? The apparent thinking is that showing such a picture will inflame the jihadists and have them seeking revenge? Like flying into Pakistan, assaulting Osama’s house, killing him, his son and sundry others and dumping OBL in the ocean won’t? Reuters, by the way, has released 9 photos of the aftermath of the raid, including shots of 3 bodies. If you’re averse to blood and gore skip the...

    The sixteen hours Obama spent goofing off while our magnificent SEALS had to wait around for what should have been the ultimate no brainer should have been spent doing at least a minimum of planning. Sending in the SEALS without a plan for the aftermath is what has enabled the Obama administration to turn a great moment into a typical Obama train wreck. Did no one in the administration bother to consider the possibility that the photos could become an issue? First, we were told the government would release the photo of the results of Navy SEALS vs bin Laden....

    (FOX 25 / - Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown declared on the Fox 25 Morning News Wednesday that he had seen proof that Osama bin Laden was dead. Hours later, he was back tracking. It turns out the picture was a fake, and it now appears he wasn’t the only senator fooled by it. When asked if the photo should be released, Brown said: “If it's for informational purposes, to serve a specific goal, then possibly. Listen, I’ve seen the picture. He’s definitely dead, and if there's any conspiracy theories out there, you should put them to rest, ok? He...
  • Vanity: The New Self-Imposed "No Inflammatory Images" Liberal Rule (Yes To Abu Ghraib, No To Osama)

    Sorry for the vanity: This new rule of "No Inflammatory Images" applies now not just to the Democrats but to every media outlet that supports the decision. The big question is how after ten years and countless operations in search for Osama we somehow didn't have a contingency plan that took into account how the release of such death photos would be done to mollify the Muslim world. Obviously we must not have had one since Obama & Co stated not only would photos and a video of the burial be forthcoming but in fact just yesterday Leon Panetta stated...

    President Obama has decided not to release any photos of Usama bin Laden's dead body, Fox News confirms, amid concern that doing so could inflame sentiment against U.S. troops. The president revealed his decision during an interview with CBS News' "60 Minutes." A U.S. official confirmed to Fox News that Obama had decided against the release. The announcement follows a charged debate on whether the risk might outweigh the benefit if any images or video are released showing bin Laden after he was fatally shot by U.S. forces.
