Heh. Nice. Well, not really - completely inappropriate. They're probably just responding to the "Bush giving the middle finger to the camera" video from two weeks ago.

Wow. That's pretty inappropriate.

But it's definitely funny.

Of course they'll edit it. It's totally inappropriate and unprofessional, and I'd be shocked if the person responsible for it isn't strongly reprimanded. Surely you can't think this is anything but the work of one individual programmer, or do you think CNN directed the guy to name the file asshole. jpg?

From what I've seen in the past, some here will believe this came from the top down. No matter that some web guy would have had to do this, it already being completely out of the hands of all reporters, editors and publishers. Also, I fail to see how this is CNN's fault. It seems to me Netscape posts their own stuff, then links to CNN's election coverage. The story that picture links to does not contain the picture that I can find.

Stop being such an apologist. If you look at the file, it employs the same exact compression scheme that Wolf Blitzer uses for all the JPEGS he creates.

Checked that, and the direct link still works. You'd think that they'd remove the original jpg.

NO WAY this is beyond one person. Totally a fireable offense, but it's funny to me.

I'd expect nothing less from the most trusted news source.

wrong but kind of funny because almost no one would see it.

But big time adds to the image that CNN is the Fox news of the left
