White House Prefers Staged Photos to Real Photojournalism

Apparently the Bush Administration prefers to hand out staged photographs of the president, rather than let the White House News photographers do their jobs.

According to an article in Editor & Publisher here, the Bush White House has handed out 500 staged photos in President Bush's five years in the White House. In contrast, under President Bill Clinton's Administration, they only handed out 100 staged photos in eight years.
