    It's way too easy to catch someone in a freeze-frame temporary point where their mood looks very different from what it actually is.  It's a trick often used by propaganda artists at places like Fox - to step through a video slowly and capture a frame of the one spot where the person, in mid-motion, happened to adopt the facial expression and body language you want to publicize, even if that one spot is not indicative of the way the person looks in the rest of it, and not indicative of what they looked like in motion.

    (i.e. here's the president giving a speech and smiling, go through it frame by frame and find the one spot where his mouth doesn't look like a smile and make that the photo we'll use on our lead story.)
