NBC Affiliate Puts Photo Of Laughing Obama, Biden Atop Story On Movie Theater Massacre

 

 

While illustrating a story about Vice President Joe Biden’s comments today regarding the Colorado movie theater massacre, the NBC affiliate in Miami made a rather unfortunate photo choice on its web site.

As seen above (left), the TV station’s original story carried an image of Biden laughing with President Barack Obama while the pair attended a basketball game last week. The headline above the photo read, “Joe Biden Talks About Movie Massacre Victims And Law Enforcement.”

A revised story (above right) replaced the laughing photo with a video of Biden addressing the National Association of Police Organizations convention in Palm Beach. Biden told conference attendees that they understand “better than anyone in this country both the grief the families are feeling and the courage of those undaunted heroes in that movie theater.”
