Did The NY Post Go Too Far? [Poll]

Flickr user Antonio Bonanno

Today, with all the gadgets and gizmos that many of us carry around with us, we can take and share pictures unlike ever before. But when does a picture go too far?

Yesterday, a man was pushed from the platform of a subway stop in New York and killed by an oncoming train.
A tragic story that is certainly newsworthy. But The New York Post went one step further, splashing the front page with a full page picture of the man desperately trying to climb back on to the platform as the train was approaching, with the following headline:

Pushed on the subway track, this man is about to die
DOOMED

I didn’t have to debate very long about whether to reproduce the picture here or not. Doing so, and criticizing the Post at the same time wouldn’t make me much better than they are. If you really want to see their front page, you can do so here.

So what do you think, did the Post go too far or were they merely reporting the news? Vote on the poll below and let us know what you think.
