Adéu a Nihil Obstat | Hola a The Catalan Analyst

Després de 13 anys d'escriure en aquest bloc pràcticament sense interrumpció, avui el dono per clausurat. Això no vol dir que m'hagi jubilat de la xarxa, sinó que he passat el relleu a un altra bloc que segueix la mateixa línia del Nihil Obstat. Es tracta del bloc The Catalan Analyst i del compte de Twitter del mateix nom: @CatalanAnalyst Us recomano que els seguiu.

Moltes gràcies a tots per haver-me seguit amb tanta fidelitat durant tots aquests anys.

Imatges i preguntes

Verbal Caricature es pregunta per què les agències presenten les fotografies d'aquest forat sense dir que es tracta de la mateixa casa i per què aquest forat canvia de dimensions segons la instantània?

I went through like 300+ pictures on Yahoo! News and they had pictures from Reuters, the A(w/t [MM]P, and the AFP. Now, aside from the fact that in all 300+ captions they mention that Israel troops killed 18 Palestinian civilians, mostly women and children, they also mixed photos of mourning people at a “funeral” with the destruction of the city that the Israelis caused. Now, if they had put the pictures of the destruction all in the same group, you would have noticed that they simply took the same building and shot pictures of different people standing in/on/around it.

Notice, also, the progression of the hole in the wall- pardon the pun. First it starts off kind of small (1), then it gets slightly larger (3), then it’s large enough to fit 2 small children in (4). Are people doing construction work and attending the funeral at the same time? Are photographers, then, just happening to get shots without the demolishers and with random by-standers? Interesting if you ask me.
