The Card Cheat: What I find really annoying and evasive is photographs of grieving relatives at funerals. The fact that family members of a drunk driving accident or murder victim are sad is not news - especially if they are not public figures - and does not add anything of value to the public's understanding of the event.
ShutterBun: Sure is an awful lot of evocative, humane, humanized writing that predates photography...
And yet for some reason, a lot of people back then felt compelled to create paintings and drawings of notable events.
