              Band of Brothers?
Nudnikette pointed out a very interesting picture in the New York Times movie review section. The review glowingly states
The film, subtitled "The Story of the Crew of Patrol Craft Fast 94," charmingly pretends to be a study of the six-man team that patrolled the Mekong Delta in early 1969 on the 94, treating the team's leader, the young John Kerry, as just one of the guys.
But look closely at the picture. This is not a "band of brothers", and Kerry is not "one of the guys". There are clearly two "groups" in this photo: the crew, and Kerry. Not noticing this is, in Nudnikette's words, visual illiteracy.

And here is some more visual commentary from the review of Bush's Brain, a hit piece on Karl Rove and by extension Bush. No bias here.....
