Michelle Obama’s Target trip: Critics take aim

Michelle Obama’s Target trip: Critics take aim | Photography and society | Scoop.it
Photos of Michelle Obama at an Alexandria store draw criticism as the Associated Press and White House stay mum on how the images came about.

"But it is uncommon, and perhaps unprecedented, for a single news organization to record such a trip. First ladies, such as Laura Bush and Hillary Rodham Clinton, occasionally went shopping or on outings in Washington without anyone in the media tagging along.

 

An official White House photographer often records private or personal moments involving the president and first lady. But news organizations are hesitant to publish such photos because they are considered promotional. Having a respected news organization such as the Associated Press take and distribute the photos, on the other hand, might increase their newsworthiness, considering that they were produced independent of the White House’s image-making machinery."
