    @metoc I dunno, those (Germans) aren't really voters. And by the number of cameras in the photo held by ordinary people I don't think that you can say that this is "controlled media" by any stretch.

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Media Me, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    Whoa... what jumps out at me is that it's a very white crowd.

    almost bleached

    And his speech is amazing. Must see streaming tv. Did he have no teleprompter?

    Can you imagine being a McCain staffer and watching that speech... I can imagine a long sigh... and then what would you pin your hopes on?

    A bunch of Germans at a political rally... ah, forget it.

    I heard that the free concert by German Reggae star Patrice and the band Reamonn before the speech, and the free beer and brat...had nothing to do with the 20,000 or so folks Der Spiegel reported showing up. Nothing at all. His campaign takes some awesome campaign shots, too, no?.

    Note the number of devices, cameras / video recording / even a laptop taking video. Interesting if anyone can spot a dictaphone or audio-only recording device.

    Would also be interesting to know how many of those people share their content- flickr, facebook or other.

    ... the potential future is multiple in this photo!

    I was surprised how many people of color there were, after all it's Germany, not the USA.

    And I think the McC staffers know they're going to lose and are doing what they can to build their resumes for the next campaign.

    Does anyone have a link to this photo on an AP site or in a publication that gave it a full photo caption and credit line to the photographer?

    It actually does look a little strange, unfocus a bit and then look at the color variations in the large size. It is kind of weird looking. I can't imagine that someone would try to photoshop this and then get away with it considering I heard it was on the WSJ front page.
  • Matthias Winkelmann 7y

    No Photoshop. It's just a tele, the effect is well known. And the part of the crowd I was in (including the Macbook) looks right. Opposite perspective is here:

    @chuckluck: I didn't even know the band, and nobody was listening to it. A bottle of water cost 3€ (5$), beer and food even more. So please don't spread any lies.
