Wishful Thinking at the Associated Press

The Associated Press published this photograph of Ted Cruz earlier today. Cruz was speaking at a 2nd Amendment event in Iowa:


As Breitbart News points out, the photographer took lots of other pictures of Cruz. The AP didn’t have to publish a photo tightly cropped, with a pistol pointing directly at Cruz’s head. But some AP photo editor thought it was a clever way to send a message about Cruz’s presidential candidacy.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the AP to put out a photo of Hillary Clinton with a gun pointing at her head.
