and the people revolt

CNN posted a picture of Sen. Barack Obama on vacation in Hawaii that is very similar to one that was splashed across tabloid magazines in 2006  on its political ticker website. In the name of no news news, the people revolted. Check out this sample of comments from the site. Now, these are just the first five comments. But if you read on, the comments are almost unanimously anti-CNN for posting this photo:

what’s next? reporting him shaving as news?
John August 14th, 2008 6:43 pm ET
Cool, that man deserves a vacation.

Unlike McCain, Obama campaigns 7 days a week.

Can’t a guy have a private moment?

Are you guys serious? This isn’t news. Leave him alone.

While Geogia is being brutally invaded……..
Hey, the Enquirer had an "I told you so" moment. Why to traditional media too?

Hey, the Enquirer had an "I told you so" moment. Why not live up to their standards?
