What’s more shameless than the Associated Press defying the wishes of a dying Marine’s family and splashing his bloody body all over the wires?

Why, the Huffington Post reprinting a massively large version of the image on its front page with an accompanying blog commentary praising the AP photographer’s work as “tasteful” — along with thousands of comments praising the decision and calling for even more bloody US troop photos to be published.

***

And no, I’m not done with the AP yet. Blogger Ztower points out that the AP refused to reprint the Mohammed Cartoons because they were “offensive”

, but has no problem offending a dead Marine’s family for the Greater Journalistic Good of ginning up anti-war sentiment.

Slimeballs.
