An editorial ...

[Prime Minister Netanyahu and Secretary Clinton]

by Rina Castelnuovo. Castelnuovo is a photographer. For sure, she took literally hundreds of pictures of Netanyahu and Clinton during their public appearance in Jerusalem. Yet she (or her editor) chose this one to publish in the New York Times.

Unlike written editorials which are supposed to be labeled as such, this photographic expression of disdain for the two subjects is presented as news.

Just as the internet is awash with spam presented as email, this is propaganda presented as photography.
