Haiti: Two thumbs down for Kevin Sites

Alice Backer gives reporter Kevin Sites “two thumbs down” for his Flickr photo journal of Haiti. “The photo journal does what mainstream journalists usually do when they show Haiti: show the very worst and the very worst *only*. Some would argue that the shock created by the pictures helps bring attention to the problems. Hmmm… only partially. At this point Haiti is dealing with a “helplessly hopeless and darn right cursed” image that MSM tend to feed into.”
