As an example, this very angry image of Trump accompanies a rather aggressive toned article on Open border policy


Whereas the following image has Trump with a more somber look to reflect the seriousness of the tragedy he was observing and helping with.


You can for the most part see the emotional reaction the article intends to elicit by studying the expression of the subject in question with the images provided.

It can be anyone from a celebrity to a politician to a victim of a tragedy. Marketing is all about appealing to emotions and feelings more than anything else. And these venues have to do what they can to generate their ad revenue, which means targeting the emotions they know their readers want to experience on a subject.

Trump is my man though thats why I used his images, but its the same with Hillary, Obama, John Kerry, Biden, the Generals at the Pentagon, foreign diplomats and so on.

NLP techniques stand out like sore thumbs. Try not to gorge yourselves on the koolaid folks- Its all a Hollywood Production and Trump is in the Big Club as well the 99% of us are not. Carlin was telling you the truth.

A picture is worth 1,000 words. We can't afford to pass up an exchange rate like that when illiteracy is at all time highs.

Reldra read up on the Times OJ Simpson cover

These tactics have been going on for decades.


I thought he was innocent and I never saw the Times cover, I will look at it though.



It's an infamous example. They basically took the mug shot photo of OJ and darkened the image to make him look menacing. The case had so much racial tension with a "black man murdering a white woman" and the Times editor exploited this to sell magazines

ahh yes, I found it, and the difference is clearly noticeable. It was a controversy then too apparently.



“Pretty crazy, huh?” the African American man working at the newsstand says. “They made him blacker.” Did they really? Yeah, they did. Welcome to the third edition of O.J. Fact Check.

WHAT? NO.
Yes! And it was super obvious. This was a huge deal in June 1994, because magazine covers mattered more than they do now. When both Time and Newsweek put the same person on their covers in the same week, it meant that person was a big deal.

The Internet was in its infancy — so in its infancy that the New York Times didn’t call it the Internet — it called it American Online, and the Time cover was one of the first things to spark Internet outrage — or at least, American Online outrage. The Times explained:

I was an eight year old child that just returned from the beach with my family when pop turned on the TV and there was the pursuit happening live, so I never noticed the covers controversy until you mentioned it a moment ago. Crazy # man.

Some other posters said it's because of propaganda, that's not quite right though. The pictures match the intent of the article, people who dislike Trump are more likely to read an article that has an unflattering picture of Trump on it. Basically, the images are used so that people subconsciously select the articles to read that go along with their preconceived opinions.
