Nathan Goulding at the National Review's Media Blog caught a couple of interesting captions for pictures of Osama bin Laden at AP and Agence France-Presse yesterday. The captioners did world-class gymnastics to avoid referring to the al-Qaeda leader as a terrorist. Instead, both wire services called bin Laden a "Saudi dissident," which somehow implies that the mastermind of attacks that have killed thousands of people has some moral equivalency with Natan Scharansky.
Nathan decided to see how well the blogosphere and its readers could emulate the example given by our older siblings in the media, and I submitted entries for both pictures. I wound up with one winning entry, while a Media Blog reader took the other honors. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.Sphere It View blog reactions
