Media Bias and the War Protests Last Weekend

I am curious about the thoughts and feelings about the page I am linking to.

We had a pretty good discusion about the Spain Train bombing a while back, and this page is demonstrating the effects of cropping an image from the rally.

Any thoughts?

I'm acutely aware of media bias, but I'm not exactly sure what kind of message he's trying to convey. I think it's an issue of "bias" himself to merely brush off the girl as a bumbling idiot who didn't realize she was parading with communists. She might have been a communist herself, as far as we know.

I think this photo gives good context to the size of the rally.

I think you are the expert.

I really felt that the photo editing in the Spain situation was totally wrong.

In this case, I am just not sure it represents any more than what you call it. Issue bias.

I am not a frequenter of this web site....and examining the main page after posting this...I am sorry I linked to it.
