  1. #1 Lefty Photog Misuses Atlantic Credentials To Smear McCain 
    Atlantic Magazine Might Sue McCain Smearing Photographer
    By Noel Sheppard (Bio | Archive)
    September 15, 2008 - 15:46 ET

    The photographer that viciously smeared John McCain at her website might be facing a lawsuit for violating the terms of agreement in her contract with The Atlantic magazine.

    As NewsBusters reported Saturday, Jill Greenberg not only admitted to taking a rather sinister picture of the Republican presidential candidate that she hoped The Atlantic would use on its October cover, but she also generated some truly disturbing and disgraceful images of McCain which she proudly displayed at her website.

    The magazine's editor, James Bennet, told Fox News's Megyn Kelly Monday that he was deeply sorry about this incident, and that The Atlantic isn't taking it lying down (audio available here, partial transcript follows, h/t NBer blonde) :

    JAMES BENNET, EDITOR 'THE ATLANTIC': I'm already drafting a letter of apology [to McCain]. I mean, this photographer went in there under our auspices to take a covershot for us. Again, we stand by the picture, and we produced a terrific story on John McCain...But while she was there, she behaved in an incredibly underhanded and unprofessional way. [...]

    MEGYN KELLY, HOST: What do you do to shut down her use on her website, not just of that covershot, but the disgusting things she has done to John McCain's image on her website which I won't repeat here?

    BENNET: She's violated the terms of our agreement with her, or our contract with her. So, we're taking steps. We're looking into steps we can see to do something about that.

    KELLY: Are you considering a lawsuit?

    BENNET: We're looking into what we can do.

    KELLY: Would that be including legal action?

    BENNET: If we can, if it's available to us, yeah.

    KELLY: Has she been paid?

    BENNET: No.

    KELLY: Will she be?

    BENNET: No.

    Clearly, this story isn't over yet...not by a longshot.
    Is there no low to which these people won't stoop? :mad:

    You have to ask? The article carried one of her pics (see below), and it's a truly despicable smear. I'd expect this from the Daily Kossacks, but not from a professional journalist. Okay, maybe Chris Matthews or Kieth Olbermann. Regardless, it's still reprehensible that this person abused her position this way, and at least the Atlantic is doing the right thing.

    Liberal Roots, The Hive Mind That Is Todays Liberalism !

    The democRAT party is the home of every type of criminal and pervert imaginable.
    .................................
    Democrats...the party of Slavery, Segregation, Sodomy, and Sedition
    ...............................
    Give a Liberal a thought and he’ll repeat it mindlessly all day. Teach a Liberal to think for himself and he’ll vote Republican for the rest of his life.
    .................................
    What the liberal mind is passionate about is a world filled with pity, sorrow, neediness, misfortune, poverty, suspicion, mistrust, anger, exploitation, discrimination, victimization, alienation and injustice.
    ..................................
    They are poor, weak, sick, wronged, cheated, oppressed, disenfranchised, exploited and victimized. They bear no responsibility for their problems. None of their agonies are attributable to faults or failings of their own: not to poor choices, bad habits, faulty judgment, wishful thinking, lack of ambition, low frustration tolerance, mental illness or defects in character.
    .............................
    None of the victims’ plight is caused by failure to plan for the future or learn from experience. Instead, the “root causes” of all this pain lie in faulty social conditions: poverty, disease, war, ignorance, unemployment, racial prejudice, ethnic and gender discrimination, modern technology, capitalism, globalization and imperialism.
    ..................................
    In the radical liberal hive mind, this suffering is inflicted on the innocent by various predators and persecutors: “Big Business,” “Big Corporations,” “greedy capitalists,” U.S. Imperialists,” “the oppressors,” “the rich,” “the wealthy,” “the powerful” and “the selfish.”
    ................................
    Freedom of speech must never be suppressed, except for criticism directed at minorities, non-Christian religions, homosexuals, communists, illegal aliens, and other constituencies of the Democrat party.
    ..............................
    For the moment, the ideological heirs of those that believe the flames of liberty must be extinguished and the aspirations of the individual curtailed for the alleged good of humanity have grown more sophisticated in their methods of getting the people to comply with their agenda.
    ..................................
    However, as Americans draw ever closer to the breaking point of just how much they are willing to put up with as frankly we are fast approaching the threshold where there is precious little left for the state to steal, we must ask with concern will the aspiring despots among us resort to the violent tendencies of their philosophical progenitors in the attempt to bring about socialism’s ultimate triumph

    Jill Greenberg Dropped by Photo Agency

    16 Sep 2008 01:05 pm
    The Vaughan Hannigan photo agency, which has represented the disgraced, excrement-obsessed photoshopper Jill Greenberg, has just dropped her from its client list. Bill Hannigan, who runs the agency, told me a few minutes ago that Greenberg and the agency had "different views on how to conduct business." He said he couldn't say anything more because he is "still sorting out some issues with Jill related to her contract."

    Soros is the banker of pretty much every far left cause you can imagine. Funny how leftists hate capitalists and bankers, but, curiously, don't seem to mind Soros. Anyone would think leftists have no principles.
