Week 10 Discussion Topic: Robert Capa and the Greatest War Photograph

From my perspective, Capa’s photograph seems to be staged and it should be a problem if it was published. The most important role of the media is to deliver the facts to the public. It may worked for Capa to deliver the message to public regarding the cruelty of wars. However, when the photos that published are staged, the press is lying to the public by creating a story. When you stage a scene, no matter how hard a photographer tries, his own perspective adds in to the scene somehow, and it could deliver the wrong message to the public.
