Getting the Word (And the Pictures) Out

Here is an interesting story from the online edition of the UC Santa Barbara student newspaper about a pro-life demonstration which utilized graphic photos of abortion.

The story was better balanced than most (that's always nice) but you'll notice that the photo which accompanied the news account (shown here at right) carefully omits any sight which might reveal the horrible violence of abortion and insteads highlights the counter-protesters.

It seems that accuracy and fairness in college journalism do have their limits.
