Photog Says She Purposely Made Glenn Beck Look Bad On Time Cover
Mediaite ^ | September 18, 2009 | Steve Krakauer

Posted on 09/18/2009 12:03:58 PM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

As we noted yesterday when news broke about Time Magazine’s cover story on Glenn Beck, the image used is from a photo shoot last year by Jill Greenberg.

It’s an interesting choice. Greenberg is known for her liberal views – and she’s being very upfront about her use of this opportunity to take revenge on those who attacked her.

Greenberg brought up the cover on Twitter (she goes by the ironic handle @JillManipulator). Here’s her comment:

exactly a year after my right wing attack, i am retouching one of my attackers for a magazine cover. leaving blemishes of course.

Time may not have known Greenberg’s intent here, but this is a very blatant admittance on her part that she’s purposely making Beck look bad. And although Time may not have known that, they had to have known her background.

She’s the same photographer who took purposely awful pictures of Sen. John McCain during the campaign, and then photoshopped them on her own site to make him look even worse. The Atlantic said they wouldn’t pay her for her work because she “went beyond the parameters of her contract.”

They’ve run into a brick wall with Beck because he doesn’t care what they think.

If I’m not mistaken, on Glenn’s radio show yesterday morning, he seemed rather pleased about the picture.

What? Unlike the "fair" person who wrote the cover title "Mad Man"? Of course she was trying to make him look bad. Wasn't that the point of the article?

I read the article on their web site...it’s not as bad as I expected. The reporter was evidently charmed a bit by Glenn.

Why would Glenn want to be on the cover of Time anyway? He has much more listeners than Time has readers.

He also said it done during the photo shoot for the cover of GQ, that the photographer wasn't supposed to be using it/allowing its use for a different publication, (or words to that effect ... I'm sorry, I can't quote verbatim).

That's good to hear. I saw Glenn hold up the mag on his show last night. My first thought was "OUTSTADNING!" You can't pay for that kind of publicity. How many people of all persuasions are going to check out his show even from just seeing this picture in the grocery line?

They (or maybe Newsweak) did the same thing with Rush, used an unflattering photo of him on the cover. His listenership went up. Same with Beck and the “boycott” by the liberals of his sponsors. They're just practicing Alinsky tactics, portraying their opponents in as unflattering a manner as possible. It blows up in their ugly faces every time, but they don't seem to learn.

None of us care what they think anymore. They have blown their credibility with their hysterical pejoratives and over-the-top race baiting, and now they all just look petty, foolish and inept.

Which confirms the obvious truth of the past 20+ years, that TIME is not a news magazine, but instead a cheap, left-wing propaganda rag.

Glenn is the first person I started listening to on talk radio, followed shortly by Rush.

You can’t make those gents look bad. Their personalities show through without them having to say a word, but then they open their mouths and get even sexier.

Beck and Rush are hot.

Liberal women are not.

Jealousy is not a good color for anyone.

I worked with mental patients. Trust me, they don’t look like that.

He looks childish, maybe. I like it. My wallpaper on my computer was my DH doing the same thing. I think it’s cute.

purposely making Beck look bad

I agree it looks good. It looks as if he's enjoying himself—having fun making fun of TIME and the dinosaur media.

I think the artist in her is working against the nihilist ideologue. Blemishes? Not that I can see. Maybe she kinda likes him.
