What was your reaction to the New York photographer taking a photo moments before a man was hit by a train? If you were the NY Post, would you have run the photo? Share your views here.
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
Who draws the line when it comes to reporting news and posting photographs for a large newspaper? Whoever approved the photo of the man that was pushed off the platform into an oncoming train last night in New York City, shame on them. If they were determined to use the front page, why didn't they use it to post the photo of the man that pushed the victim, as he hasn't been found as yet. Shame on the Editor who gave the green light to post the photo and to make it worse, entitling it "Doomed". How heartless can that Newpaper be?
In LA and NYC, I always ride the subway and to think that if I were to have a tragic accident and have it spread all over the news with a headline "Doomed" is so WRONG in every way. My family would be devastated.
Has our country become so desensitized that we've lost ALL respect for those that have been been lost in a horrific accident or in this case crime.
My heart and prayers to the man that lost his life on the New York Subway.
