Why We Need Editors

Dateline: Fri 18 Feb 2011

The photo and headline below appeared on the home page of The Indianapolis Star’s Web site on Feb. 17, 2011. Why should this man be frowning? Perhaps because he’s not Paul Reese, who is being charged in the death of a 13-year-old girl. Actually, he is Terry Curry, the Marion County prosecutor. There is, however, no identification with his picture.  

Always check to see how photo and text work together (or in this case, don’t work together).


Later in the day, this second photo (below) was dropped in.

I saw this, and laughed. And the mug shots they've been runnning are just...scary.

Genetics isn't kind sometimes, huh?

What a persuasive argument for eugenics.

Indiana was a leader in eugenics in the early 20th century.

Obviously, it wasn't successful.

Hilarious. Reminds me of another paper in Gary that identified a social group of ladies as hookers.

It would have been more fun if it would have been Brizzi's picture! ;)
