Goodnight Reality

--posted by Tony Garcia on 12/01/2005

This goes under media bias because I think that the publisher (one of the media) is, through mass communication, projecting a very harmful precedent.

The story is that the book Goodnight Moon is celebrating its 60th anniversary in a couple of years. On the back of the book there is a picture of the illustrator, Clement Hurd, was holding a cigarette. Then...
The son of illustrator Clement Hurd, Thacher Hurd, told The New York Times he was pressured by HarperCollins to let the publisher digitally alter the picture of his father in a newly revised edition of the book, removing a cigarette from his hand.

Wanna see the picture, before and after, go to goodnightreality.com. They also have a poll there...should the picture be doctored in Stalinist/revisionist fashion or should the original be left put?

How militant are the anti-smoke freaks? They hacked the aforementioned poll.

And finally, if you want to e-mail the publisher, Harper Collins, to voice your viewpoint on their politically correct, revisionist history, Stalin-like insanity feel free. Contact Maria Modugno (maria.modugno@harpercollins.com) and Kate Jackson (kate.jackson@harpercollins.com).
