It seems the staging of still photos has raised an ethical discussion.
“The White House continues to debate whether to release photos showing Osama bin Laden’s body. In theory, the photos would be proof to any doubters that the terrorist is dead. But not all photos can be believed — not even when they seem to show the President of the United States making a historic speech.
Reuters White House photographer Jason Reed describes in his blog how the president made his speech to a single TV camera, then immediately after finishing, he pretended to speak for the still cameras.”
