Using Metadata as a Political Statement
WorldNetDaily: Net photo of Bush slugged as ‘a–hole’ A photograph of President and Mrs. Bush featured in online election coverage by AOL Time Warner companies uses a graphic slur in the coding of the picture.
The photo, which appeared on a Netscape site co-branded with CNN, originally was slugged a–hole.jpg as identified when viewers clicked on the “properties” of the picture. Though the original Web address of the photo with the slur has been disabled, readers last night could actually see the photo isolated with the slur by going to the online address.
