— The White House has finally decided how it will handle official photos now that it canned fake photo shoots. From now on, one and only one photographer will document a historic speech as it happens.
The controversy began after the President’s historic Osama Bin Laden speech. All the official photos that hit the news media were taken during a staged photo shoot. A small but vocal group of people were outraged and called on Obama to come clean. In response, the White House banned these staged photo shoots and started looking for a replacement.
As a compromise, the White House will hand over the reigns to one lucky photographer who will record the highlights of that particular event. It works out great for everyone except the poor soul stuck taking the pictures. There’s no pressure, it’s only the entire world relying on you to capture the perfect moment.
