You can always count on Conrad Moffat Black, His Lordship of Crossharbour (and lately, of the Penitentiary) to exemplify model behavior and propriety. And to illustrate, in graphic terms, just what conservatism is all about.
And now, you can also grin at the sweetness of the Lords of Karma, because the above photo won its shooter a prize:
A photo of former Canadian media baron Conrad Black giving the finger to reporters during his trial in Chicago has taken top prize for spot news at the second annual National Pictures of the Year awards competition.
The Conrad Black photo was taken by David Chidley of the Canadian Press during the businessman’s trial, in which Black was convicted of obstructing justice and defrauding shareholders of his former newspaper company, Hollinger International Inc.
Black is currently serving a 6 1/2-year sentence at a jail in central Florida.
Couldn’t have been more richly deserved, eh?
