Misleader.org: Daily Mislead: "More Photographic Dishonesty from President Bush


In the most famous picture from his trip to Baghdad, President Bush had himself artfully photographed to look like he was serving turkey to the troops.1 The image was emblazoned on front pages throughout the country - and now appears to be an entirely false depiction.

According to the Washington Post, Bush was actually holding 'a decoration, not a serving plate.'2 In other words, he was holding a prop, not real food, and thus only pretending for the cameras to be serving up the holiday meal. "

How completely sad and pathetic is this?

Couldn't get to sleep again last night, so I was flipping channels after The Shield. Starz was just beginning to show Punch-Drunk Love, a movie I had wanted to see since it came out in theaters, but quite got around to seeing. (Adam Sandler is hit-or-miss with me, but I've enjoyed all of Paul Thomas Anderson's movies.) So, not wanting to let an opportunity pass, I settled in and kept watching. All I can say is: Sandler is definitely redeemed after the mess that was Eight Crazy Nights, and I can see why his fans stayed away in droves. (Calling this an Adam Sandler movie is like calling Sense & Sensibility an episode of the Star Wars Trilogy.)
