Ban on Photographing Incompetent Officials

The Swift Report has a nice post today on the government ban on photographing incompetant officials.

The White House announced today that it does not want the news media to take photographs of incompetent officials in the Bush Administration. The ban would also apply to incompetent acts, say sources close to the White House.


According to a White House spokesperson, the ban on photos of incompetent officials and their acts is necessary in order to protect the privacy and dignity of such officials.


Thanks to the ban, that will all stop, say sources close to the White House. "You won't see anymore shots of the President strumming a guitar or Chertoff grimacing. This is about treating incompetent officials with the utmost dignity and respect."
