Exactly. The Daily Mail article has posted a subtle hit piece on Obama. They have really focused on the photos of him holding his money (getting ready
to pay), along with a cropped photo of the money to emphasis their point. By just looking at their headline, you can tell what they're trying to
So you admit that the pictures do seem to provoke a certain response.
They do not only focus on the pics, but the pics themselves prove a certain point.
How do you know the pic was cropped, I see no evidence for that.
No I don't admit that the pictures as a whole provoke a certain response. I think the article chose only the pictures out of the hundreds of available
pictures that would help sell their "idea". I think that photos were taken at every step of that event, including paying for the food. Normal course
of events. The incendiary headline and the money photos right at the top of the article tell the "story" that the Daily Mail wanted to tell.
What's your evidence that the photo wasn't cropped?
Incidentally, I looked at the Obama Diary, which is a website put out by the Obama campaign, chronicling the campaign trail. I see pictures of Obama
at the deli, but there are no "money wad" photos. That tells me that Obama doesn't want to emphasize the cash that he has, or he would proudly put it
on his own website for all to see. What it DOES tell me, is that there were lots of press there at the deli photo op, taking their own pictures. The
Daily Mail got hold of those photos, saw the ones with Obama paying for his food, and said, "Yeah, we'll use these and play up the "wad of cash" angle
- that will imply Obama's a fat cat who doesn't care about the rest of America."
