Press With Terrorists Shuts Down Snapped Shot
It’s Been Fun
We have been informed that the Associated Press takes issue with our use of their images on this website, and until I’m able to resolve this matter with them amicably, I’m going to have to take the site offline.
Please feel free to e-mail me if you know more about this kinda thing. I’m posting a copy of the AP’s letter below, for full disclosure.
Snapped Shot is a site that deals with the criticism of photojournalism. The industry is inaccurate in its reporting, it falls for terrorist propaganda too easily, and in general, the photos that you see presented as “news” on a daily basis are nothing more than fluff. This site has, from the beginning, intended to correct that by presenting specific instances of bias or inaccuracy along with commentary as to why said photographs are inaccurate. I have never drawn a profit from this website, and have never received compensation for any of the “copyrighted” works that are owned by the AP. Furthermore, I have always been careful to give full credit to the wire photographers who have taken the pictures, and have even interacted cordially with a handful of them.
