The Daily News Does Not Understand its Own Narrative

August 24, 2012

Please note the picture the Daily News uses to illustrate its latest story about “zooming,” “out-of-control,” “speeding menaces on two wheels” who continue to cause “dangerous near misses…and accidents” in Central Park.

Just look at these “speed demons,” won’t you?  I mean, there’s absolutely no place for Central Park’s beleaguered pedestrians and joggers to hide from these scofflaws!

It never ceases to amaze me that the agents of the bikelash do not seem able to illustrate their stories correctly.  Don’t these people understand their own narrative?

    I’m starting to think it’s difficult and time consuming to find properly illustrative pictures…

    Both joggers in the picture are in the bike lane. The bike is where it belongs. Daily News fail.

    That smile on the tandem couple’s face…I don’t trust it at all. They look like they are out for the kill.

    Well, if that picture was taken during car-free hours, pedestrians and joggers are supposed to be in either recreation lane, and bikes in the traffic lanes.

    It’s absurdly confusing. More reason to get cars out of the park entirely.
