Is New Majority Trying To Say Something With Its Choice of Picture?

This morning David Horowitz highlighted how at David Frum’s New Majority site Frum posted his most recent response in the debate without linking to the rebuttal.

While this is a worthy criticism to make I was also put off by a different aspect of New Majority’s presentation: Why did they choose the above two pictures of Frum and Horowitz to illustrate Frum’s “Scorched Earth Conservatives” response?

Take a look at the two pictures. For Frum we see only his face and he has a fairly gentle, moderate expression. For Horowitz it’s a full body shot and he has an aggressive look on his face. (What little one can even make of his face!)

There are plenty of choices available when one searches “David Horowitz” in Google Image Search — including head shots and calm expressions. So why would New Majority’s editors go out of their way to pick an image in which Horowitz looks unreasonable?

UPDATE: New Majority has posted Horowitz’s reply to Frum. Thank you.
