Explaining "News" to the AP

Dear AP:

When you have more photogs coving an event than you have people attending it:

IT AIN'T NEWS

Geeze they are so anxious to find something to make Bush look bad, they just make news up. Get over it!

BTW I moved the cap under the pic to make it fit our template. The original is here.

So I couldn't decide what to file it under... So shoot me. - Damn, now I have to add humor.

That picture reminds me of the pic taken of Al Sharpton, early in the 2004 presidential campaign circus, showing him speaking to a nearly empty room.

But at least Al had somebody to talk to other than the media.
