Is this offensive? On the blog Visual Editors, a site for people mostly in the design/photojournalism end of the news business, there are a couple of controversies being debated. One is the doctoring of images to enhance their impact -- a subject I'll leave alone, and the other is the picture shown above.
The site says the Business & Media Institute has carried several objections to the photograph -- mostly from Iwo Jima vets, who call it "a disgrace." Is it the picture? Or the assertion that global warming is likened to World War II?
Who really cares what the business and media institute has to say about this subject. Like every close-minded opinionist, this author can't even see the intent behind the illustration. It has nothing to do with the vets per-say. I'm sorry that our vets are offended, but their time is history.
The author of the institutes' article, says that the times goal is to: "push more global warming alarmism". Well, what isn't scary about global warming. These opponents of global warming need to educate themselves and read a real scientific analysis on the subject instead of reading their consumer report.
