Rick Scott's Office Asks the Media to Engage in Photo Censorship -- No Thanks

This is not the Rick Scott-approved photo.
Gov. Rick Scott's office emailed members of the media yesterday, asking that we all use one specific picture of the governor.

"Please forward the attached photo of Governor Rick Scott to the appropriate people in your organization who handle graphics, layout and design," the email says. "Please use this photo of Governor Scott, rather than any others you may have on file."

We're not sure if the governor came up with this idea after a conference call with Kim Jong-il, but that won't be happening here.

You can see the photo they would like us to use after the jump:

The man in the "recommended" photo is a pretty good doppelganger for Scott. Doesn't truly capture the essence of him, though.

I say: Carry on carrying on!

Funny, "asking" the media is NOT censorship as your dramatic and misleading headline states.  When Hillary Clinton asked the media to refer to her as Hillary Rodham Clinton just after her husband's first inaugural, no one thought that was censorship.  Get real.

I can understand why they chose that specific photo.

He appears almost human.

He's asked media members to censor themselves. I don't find that misleading in the least. And I'm not sure how Hillary asking people use her full name would influence anyone's image or perception of her. Got real.
