The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Reuters' Priorities

When one of Reuters' own photojournalists was assaulted by Hezbullah thugs, the news agency didn't express a whole lot of interest in bringing you the story.

The agency showed just as much disinterest when an Agence France-Presse photographer was roughed up by Hamas goons.

The agency treats the beating of EPA photojournalist Abdul Hashlamoun (possibly a relative of a Reuters stringer) to be a far more newsworthy event.

Can you guess why?

Heart-wrenching photo coverage here.

Update: Abdul's photographic work can be found here

Nobody cares about Reuters or their priorities.
