Well Virginia, the low can always go lower it seems, and there is no shame in partisanship; Occupy Wall Street or OWS supporters are editing images to generate sympathy.
Most of us have seen this image:
Now that looks like a pretty nasty place to be, deep inside a cloud of toxic orange teargas/smoke, wouldn’t you agree? But, what would happens if we applied a simple, totally standard and automatic color correction to the photo. As many of you know, color corrections generally cannot produce real-life colors if the image was shot in colored lighting. On the other hand, if the lighting was just dim thee is a tendency in a digital image to get a shift toward the sepia or orange… Hmm, I am getting curious myself; let’s see what happens:
Ok, this is getting a bit embarrassing for the Occupy Oakland crowd; I mean really, using Granny to gain sympathy this way, what was this lady even doing there if not attempting to play martyr? And even so they have to use a distorted image to generate sympathy.
This is the beginning of the end for the movement I a afraid. The desperate shrillness that is creeping to the national “voice” of the movement is doing them more harm than good. There comes a time when you fold your tents and wait for another day to manufacture a different, more structured and focused spontaneous demonstration; they might try including an endgame in the plan, counting on the focus of the useful idiots of the Flea Party is a fools game at best.
