    You better get used to this being the style du jour for tyrants, terrorists and teases of all stripes.

    I find these objections to have the same validity at those criticizing Rachel Jeantel for looking "bad" on tv. Just another example of how our society wants to see images in black and white even when the pixels are in color.

    •  there are many reasons for the objections. (1+ / 0-)

      Some of them maybe because, as you suggest, people want to see images that conform to people's preconceived notions.  There are many other reasons as well.  

      But frankly I don't see a major issue with people, particularly Bostonians, who would prefer a more straightforward portrayal (I don't mean more criminal--I mean less glossy) of a person who hurt many of them.
