News photography at its best

Wonderful resource here in the most unlikely of places – Vanity Fair has posted their top 25 news photographs – including this one where the American public fooled the media about who would be the next president.  Or did the media try and fool the public about how close the election might be?

Very top heavy with American or American-related images unsurprisingly – but some powerful images nonetheless – from lynchings with white crowds onlooking to Martin Luther King to Hiroshima to Buddhist monks aflame in Vietnam.  Check it out.  News photography at its best.
