This New York Post cover printed this week shows a man who had been pushed on the tracks moments before a train hits and kills him. People are pretty upset the Post decided to publish a photo of a man right before he was going to die. The photographer who took the photo (and witnessed the assault) claimed he could not help life the man and tried to use his camera flash to warn the subway train operator. Of course, that didn’t stop him from selling the photos to the New York Post.
Do you think this photo should have been published?
