When did "selfie" come to mean simply "a picture of a person"?
 
2014-03-06 08:55:46 PM
And everything - everything - Sir Patrick Stewart does is cool.

David Cameron was so keen to show how he has a direct line to the White House he tweeted a picture of himself calling Barack Obama.

But the Prime Minister's serious selfie has been mocked online, with celebrities and animals lining up to tease the Prime Minister.

The backlash once again reminds Mr Cameron of his infamous warning that 'too many tweets might make a t***'.


Is is just me or is the Daily Mail giving a sense of, "LOL Cameron showing people he's doing his job. What an asshole! This is what he gets."

Add taking "selfies" to the list of things that grown adult males should not do.

Not really. Do you really need to post a picture of yourself doing your job? He's being silly and getting mocked for it.

At least he's wearing a tie, unlike Obama in his casual shirt, mom jeans wearing, arugula and spicy mustard eating ass. And those crackers, damn. Like he owns the place.

It's his job to be on the phone with Obama. It's not his job to tweet a photo of him on the phone with Obama. Tweeting it, for fark's sake.

Hmm... I just don't get it. It's a PR photo, they're done all the time. I don't think the PM of the UK is trying to brag about contact with the President of the US, especially on such an important international issue. I think this is just as stupid as mocking Obama for wearing jeans during his conversation with Putin.

But whatever.

It's like people don't get if you don't take it yourself or there are others in the picture with you, it is not a "Selfie".

You're assuming he's the one controlling the Twitter account.  I'd bet there's some intern who controls it, with guidance from some mid-level press liason.  Barack Obama isn't the ony controlling his twitter account either...

The underlying reason for the mockery is that David Cameron is a vain disorganised dumbfock who is pretending he is capable of SERIOUS BUSINESS because he's actually on the telephone with someone important. It's ludicrous.

My understanding of UK newspapers is that "editor" isn't really indicative of a role of cleaning up the grammar/accuracy of articles, it is a position of seniority compared to the bulk of reporters (most of whom tend to be freelance, unlike the editors), and whose main role is ensuring articles in the newspaper fit the owners/boards preferred propaganda/spin - hence a key part of their role being writing "editorials".

Up to this point, this is similar to how U.S. newspapers operate. Editors (management) come in a variety of types, and don't primarily clean up copy  -- those are copy editors (non-management).

You have newspaper editors, executive editors, managing editors, section editors (sports editor, features editor, etc.), layout editors, slot editors, photo editors, and copy editors (often mistakenly called simply "editors"), for just a few examples.

He's a Member of Parliament. He is also Prime Minister.

It doesn't seem especially weird to me either.

What does seem weird is that we're calling what is functionally a stock photo to go with a caption a "selfie".  Story seems to be that his PR dept. doesn't understand that you send that directly to the Daily Mail instead of posting it on twitter.

Maybe he's also a twat, I donno.  I have enough of those to keep track of over here.
