You're welcome, for pumping up your IE6 counts. My company just recently allowed an upgrade out of IE6, because of a ton of legacy databases that it needed to support. We are also crusing along on Windows XP.
By their illustration, did they just appropriate Google's intellectual property without licensing it? Someone's in for a red light!
Also, I like how the traffic lights are to the left, while all other Google/AV icons are to the right. Don't want to get jumbled in with everyone else's information; this is important to know this arbitrary status.
People are asking to cover it because the screaming coverage does not take time to explain Assange's arrest. There is a perception by many that (1) he was arrested for espionage/treason/whatever, (2) he's being taken into custody so that "charges" related to Wikileaks are to follow, or (3) he's being picked up on the sexual assault, much like the use of mail fraud laws because it is supposedly easier to prosecute on.
I can't imagine the volume of the cable news screaming when he gets a slap-on-the-wrist sentence at most and walks free at least.
incumbent politicians often use the run up time to elections to spread their faces all over the media by having pointless signing events...
Yes, they do. And if it is not newsworthy, then it should not be reported. Since the paper deemed it newsworthy, part of its newsworthiness is who is in attendance, which could have an impact on how a voter may cast a ballot.
Photoshopping out the person could be advantageous to an opposing candidate who is too lazy to do public events. It also reports an alternate reality.
That said, cropping out people has been a time-honored media tradition. That has its own set of ethical dilemmas. That is why PR flacks always tell you to stand in the middle of a posed picture, to minimize the chance of being lopped off the end.
Methinks there would be different treatment of the photo if the candidate purchased ad space in their birdcage liner--er, newspaper.
Cablevision's News 12 operation -- a mosaic of local news organizations in New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut -- have a closed website. In order to access News 12 online, I have to enter my cable bill information or pay a fee.
It's mantra is that it is exclusive to cable TV (and only on Cablevision in areas it has a presence) and not available on satellite or phone-company TV. In the process, they have locked content down on their website, in an attempt to make the cable service more valuable.
That was nice of Mike to "protect" her name at least on this site. Commenters take care of that :)
Seriously, she will have a much harder time finding a job, and she had better change her name/get married before she tries to get a master's degree! Then again, her transcripts will probably have a note (is that legal?) about her lawsuit.
