Was Tuesday's NY Post cover unethical?
Thursday, December 6, 2012 |
Today, we hosted a Q debate over whether the New York Post should have published Tuesday's horrifying cover image of a man just seconds before he was struck and killed by a subway train. The newspaper's headline was: "Pushed on the subway track, this man is about to die... DOOMED." What do you make of the decision to publish the photo? Was it sensationalist and unethical? Or, was there value in running the photo?
