Out-Takes: Behind The Atlantic's McCain Cover @ AMERICAN DIGEST
"I called my wife a cunt in front of reporters." - Dave Winer from Bookmarklet
this is going to get soooo ugly.. - Chris Hollander
Wow -- I can't wait to see what Thomas Hawk has to say about this. You of course remember his dust up with Jill Greenberg. She is obviously a pretty low person. - Joe Beda
Jeffrey Goldberg, TheAtlantic.com: "Suffice it to say that her "art" is juvenile, and on occasion repulsive. This is not the issue, of course; the issue is that she betrayed this magazine, and disgraced her profession." http://jeffreygoldberg.theatla... - Randy Holloway
My goodness. I hope The Atlantic successfully sues Ms. Greenberg. What a despicable person. I was going to say that it's people like her who give Democrats a bad name, but no, it's people like her who give *people* a bad name. - Adam Lasnik
Very unprofessional on her part. - Rod Bauer from twhirl
Is that lipstick? - Indio Apache from twhirl
I thought the comments were about the text added to the photo. I didn't understand the uproar since I thought it was common knowledge that, yes, that incident occurred. Then I went to the link, read the post, and saw the other images. If Jill Greenberg's career as a photojournalist or magazine photographer isn't over already, it should be. Don't you think? - Cindy
She's a freelancer, she doesn't work for the Atlantic. She sold the Atlantic photo that ended up on the cover. What else she shot was her business. And she's an artist. Artists have a long tradition of playing pranks and fucking shit up. As they should. When an artist becomes professional, she dies. - Rick Powell
Rick, from what I understand when someone commissions a freelancer or anyone else to do some work they get all the photos that were taken and all the rights to them. She shouldn't have kept photos from the shoot. - Arthur Guy
You mean they hand over the negatives or the SD card? Please. - Rick Powell
They used to hand over the negatives but with digital images it obviously doesn't work, thats why you hope photographers are respectable people who abide by the contracts they working under - Arthur Guy
Perhaps the Atlantic colluded with Greenberg. Big deal. These objections and the hand-wringing and the pleas to professionalism are all so very square. I, for one, am glad these images exist. They made me laugh, and I couldn't give a rat's ass about the "ethics." - Rick Powell
Obama was wrong. You CAN put lipstick on a pig! - Indio Apache from twhirl
Greenberg's smugness is appalling, but seeing how the republican media portray Obama, up to the point of retouching his portraits and darken his skin, this is just par for the course. - dario
"they only exaggerate factual aspects about McCain" What that he is a blood sucking monster!? I don't have a problem with the images I just think they should have been done to ones taken from the public domain rather than in the un-professional way they were obtained. - Arthur Guy
Your probably right, I just thought it was funny! At the end of the day as long as it helps to keep McCain out it's a good thing - Arthur Guy
