The Beanster BS: Elian 3 (33) RE: BS: Elian 3 27 Apr 00


Very well put. I agree 100%.

And M.Ted, speaking of that AP photographer, the morning of the seizure when I was watching this stuff on the news and saw that now infamous shot of the INS agent with gun at the ready, it occurred to me, hmmmm, although the family members say this raid was totally unexpected, there they have an AP photog standing by at 5:15 in the morning, and hey, how convenient--he happens to be in the bedroom when the INS breaks in! What a coincidence! Lucky break, I guess. It was SO obvious that this photographer is a family friend/sympathizer, I'm not surprised about what you report was a posed shot of the fisherman with Elian in the closet doorway. Is this journalism? Puhleez. Such an egregious manipulation of the press is just as horrifying to me as the three-ring circus this non-newsworthy story has evolved into.
