Gingrich's Web Problem

March 4, 2011
Lavasany said he isn't responsible for any other Gingrich site-swaps, but that he may change that in the future. "I may point to something else if he starts giving his website and his run more press," Lavasany said. After Gingrich launched his fairly bare-bones website yesterday, the media pounced on what little they could find. Within a few hours, Think Progress identified the background photo of a racially diverse crowd waving American flags as a stock photo from Getty Images. The photo, Think Progress pointed out, was actually the same one that late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) used on his "Democratic Majority" website. Soon after, someone launched a Tumblr page featuring the top section of Gingrich's website with other stock photos superimposed behind Gingrich and his third wife Callista. The stock photos include pictures of crying children, an actual newt and divorce papers. "I think at this point the guy who put up Newt in front of stock photos won the internet meme game," Lavasany said. Also troubling for Gingrich: in the process of typing "Newt Gingrich explore" into Google, suggestions like "Newt Gingrich extramarital affair," "Newt Gingrich ex-wife," and "Newt Gingrich ex-wife cancer" pop up. As of the posting of this article Gingrich.com, Newtgingrich.com, Newtgingrichforpresident.com, Newtforpresident.com and Gingrichforpresident.com are all available.
