Our audience demands more video clips. So all of you still photo guys are fired.
How many remember the single most famous (American) combat photo of WWII? How many also remember that Joe Rosenthal won the 1945 Pulitzer Prize for Photography with that photograph of the US Marines raising the flag on Iwo Jima?
And how many more remember that there is also a full-color motion picture clip of that exact same event filmed by Bill Genaust? And that Mr. Genaust was standing only a few feet to the right of Mr. Rosenthal at that exact same moment? And that one of the frames in that clip is, for all practical purposes, an exact duplicate of the award winning black-and-white still photograph?
Since when did news-related video clips and still photographs suddenly become mutually exclusive entities to be pitted against each other in a perverse game of musical chairs?
