    Here is a wonderful photo of subtle bias. In this case we have the French providing us with some unbiased reporting:

    (click on photo in main text to find photo with subtext)

    This photo is a real masterpiece. Cudos to the photographer. This is a masterful use of the photo to promote an agenda. It seems to me that the anti-gun left uses emotionally based strategies to promote their position. I thought that this was an excellent example of the "emotional argument." The facts be damned.

    You're right, the smallest, most subtle things can have a huge impact.

    :rolleyes: Why can't they just come out and say what they wanna say?

    Anyone wanna bet the guy being searched is NOT the guy who was arrested. Bet ya its a file photo of some guy getting a basic patdown.

    Look at the Christ-like figure with the child grasping his legs. Beautiful.

    And remember the wonderful fathers, that stripped their kids with faked explosives around their bodies. Just for protest? Just to get the child used to it?

    The world isn't driven by respect, love, and care, but only by HATE.

    Since 12,000 years, at least.

    Remember, Patty 'Osama-Mama" Murray stated that Osama built pre-schools and daycare facilities. :barf: :cuss:

    All terrorists are benevolent and live "for the children" :rolleyes:

    This is not a photo of the arrest of a smuggler. Notice the soldier covering the search: no weapon in play. I think the pucker factor would be a little higher if you are taking down a serious BG.

    Misleading, leading, and misdirection.

    Remember, buy french milsurp: never fired, only dropped once. :D
