When "graphic" means shocking, SF Gate's art department is usually involved


Oh, you've done it again, SF Gate. Your story today on the "Online News War" employs another one of your well-trained, creative graphic artists. Who else would think of using USB cords as fingers? The circuit board skin? The starburst effect behind the half-human/half-machine man? And, my favorite, the never tiresome infinite mirror effect! Look, the image keeps repeating itself in the hybrid iPad-newspaper! History is a nightmare from which I'm trying to awaken. Then again, so is the SF Gate.

Well played, editors. I thought you couldn't do worse than that last image I complained about. And, well, maybe this isn't worse. But, it certainly isn't better.

Dear AIGA, please organize an intervention.
