I like to think I know a few things about newspapers (I've worked as news editor and photographer for an Iowa newspaper for nearly six years).

I really think there's something wrong about how a certain powerful Des Moines newspaper has represented my mom in their news article today. The photo they used of Mom in their article today was disappointing. That was an unfair representation of my mom's appearance.

Any moron with a camera and a printing press can take unflattering photos of people and publish them (just look at the National Enquirer), but I expected a higher standard from Iowa's largest newspaper.
