The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.


This photo is not it.

And you know, if this photo—which was obviously selected from a string of other shots due to the fact that it looked so... negative—weren't obvious enough, Getty makes sure that the reader gets the intended message with their loaded-word-laden caption.

Which is just like character assassination, except it's easier.

JERUSALEM, ISRAEL - AUGUST 24: (ISRAEL OUT) Conservative Christian radio & television evangelist Glenn Beck hosts a rally near the Western Wall, on August 24, 2011 in Jerusalem's Old City, Israel. The event, under the slogan 'Restoring Courage', was attended by hundreds of his evangelical Christian supporters, whilst many who oppose his right-wing views protested outside.

One last note: Our photographer is very careful to denote that Beck's rally was attended by only "hundreds" of "evangelical Christian followers," yet when asked to describe the less than a dozen protesters outside the event, "many" is the best word they could come up with?
