Your photograph of President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama in “When Terror Strikes” (April 1) caught my attention because of the artificially darkened look of their skin color. It took me awhile to recognize who was in the picture. I have noticed that other periodicals that present the president in skin tones that look touched up express only negative opinions of his character and policies.
On the other hand, in this editorial, which highlights Republican objection to Obama’s visit to Cuba in view of terrorist attacks in Europe, the JT supports the president. Although your position of approval is not apparent until the last paragraph, I was glad to see it.
However, it is my wish for print media in general and the Jewish Times in particular to stop presenting fake-looking photographs of the Obamas or anyone else because of the negativity that it may infer to readers.
