regarding the craft of photojournalism in the comments of the Chicago Trib vs. Sun-Times piece on Gawker. Do people really think photography is as simple as pointing the camera at something and pressing a button? Even with the advent of digital photography, there is still skill involved; I was a junior editor for my college newspaper, and our head photographer probably took hundreds of photos for an individual event so we could pick just the right one. Moreover, photojournalists are usually the first ones on the scene of a story; whereas a reporter can show up later and ask questions, the photographer has to be there at the right moment to get the picture, even if it means putting themselves in a dangerous position. Not that reporters don't put their lives on the line, but I would argue it's more common for photojournalists. I just don't get the hate for these brave, talented people.
