Why would I feel insulted at this? Sorkin is merely using the words 'painting' and 'photograph' as metaphors. Paintings are inexact and embellished likenesses interpreted by a human eye and brain and translated onto media; photographs are more physically exact but perhaps don't incorporate the emotional connotations like paintings. I'm sure you get the drift.

If you really want to feel insulted about anything, look at what's happening in Syria. That's an insult to the human race. IMNSHO
