  • I agree. This is why it is so important to allow the totality of the moment speak rather than just capturing what a journalist wants the moment to say (or as we are seeing on the southern border, what we don't want the journalist let it say).

    Before a commentator goes off on a political bent regarding the situation, note I didn't take a position on immigration, just an example that can lend support to the power of the story teller or story blocker since the above author clearly shares that the images could be the story and uses the word iconic more than once.
