Every Picture Tells A Story, Don'nit?

Just not the true story...

This is also how they show you "Syria" and an "Arab Spring".

It was how "Neda" was created... in the "Green Revolution".

Every picture sells a sorry donut.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who can only hear that when that song comes on the radio.

The picture I'm getting says, "UNTRUSTED CONNECTION".

You have a four-digit ID and can't figure out what that means?

All it means is that the site self-signed a certificate. Most sites do not have ANY certificates. As long as you don't transact business with this site, you'll be fine.

That seeing is not believing. The press is extraordinarily lazy even in the fluff piece things. The local paper ran a story about 10 years ago of the resurgence of the technology business sector in Phoenix, and they used a picture of my then boss and a coworker working together on a computer. The picture was originally from a story 4 years prior to that about what we really were: a NASA funded research lab, and it was my boss and coworker doing the final calibrations on our instrument before going to thermal vac testing. But it looked "hi-tech" with the double monitor set-up (not quite as common then as today) and the graphs and code.

isn't it because the news is a simulation? (1)

i have seen plenty of cg newspapers in games (sim city, axis and allies) and the press just reuse stock photos to get the story for their newspaper even if it is just a lie.

What a crock of shit. (1)

They're all brown people, so it's basically the same thing. Untwist your panties.
