The New York Times CROPS OUT George W. Bush From Their SELMA Front Page Picture

The totally objective and completely unbiased New York Times made sure that their readers didn’t see George W. Bush and Laura attend the Selma 50th Anniversary by awkwardly cutting them out of their front page picture.

It would have been very easy to leave in the other side of the picture with Dubya in it, but then they’d be destroying the narrative that no Republicans went to Selma:

Of course there were more than 20 Republicans there, but the Democrats need to win an election, so the press will make sure to push their agenda items and narratives as much as possible.

And if you’d like to pester the editor of the Times, email her at “margaret.sullivan@nytimes.com” (I encourage you to be polite in asking her why they would so blatantly cut Bush out, however).

    Sent an email to Ms. Sullivan asking her to republish photo and offer an apology.

    If only Obama had marched in Paris as well. But, you know, white people are the problem in the world not ISIS. No cropping that.

    So, where are the Clintons? Ahhhh, they weren’t there at all. That despite Hillary having “come too far” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSanb1Q23ws

    Politico: “Republicans Conspicuously Absent From Selma”

    —-

    Now we know why.

    Since it’s been all over the news, the black folks walking across the bridge absolutely KNOW it was named after a Klansman, but do they realise it was the Democrats that fired on them and tried to stop the march 50 years ago?

    Nothing was cropped out of the New York Times photo. Their photo didn’t show Bush, someone else took a photo that did…These are two different photos, one is not a cropped version of the other. Look at the tilt of the president’s head, Mrs. Obama’s legs. Another Teabagger failed conspiracy theory….

  • I didn’t say it was the same photo, you moron. He was cropped out editorially at least, not necessarily mechanically. Pendejo.

    You guys are stupid. You should be worried about the next 4 years, the next war and starvation in America.
