The Media Manipulates Images To Make Susan Boyle Look Weak Minded

by | 27th, November 2009

ANOTHER day in the media’s destruction of Susan Boyle, as we return to the Daily Mail’s picture of Susan Boyle sucking her thumb, and image used to illustrate the story:

Susan Boyle breaks down in tears on U.S. tour

In the Anorak Forums, Percy Stilton quotes:

“For a 48-year-old millionaire singing sensation to be spotted publicly sucking her thumb and bursting into tears is, frankly, extraordinary”

Forumite June replies:

It’s strange that people do comment on her emotional reactions, then you look at Amy Winehouse, Jordan, Pete Doherty etc or any actor receiving any award and SuBo seems so in control of herself…just an observation.

Reader Chris looks at the image of Susan sucking her thumb and writes:

The Daily Mail KNOWS better and is trying to ruin Susan Boyle. Look at the two pictures here of the supposed thumb sucking. In the uncropped picture, you can see people laughing. Susan was joking around because someone had used the phrase “baby steps”, a favorite of hers. People laughed. She was not upset about anything.

In a later Mail article, they have cropped out the most obvious of the laughing fans. Why do that unless they are trying to distort the truth?

Susan Boyle was hamming it up for the crowd. And the crowd loved it. Says the Daily Mail’s caption:

Starstruck: The singer was at a fan meet and greet, but gradually became more withdrawn as she struggles to cope with her new found celebrity

The media’s destruction of Susan Boyle is on track…
