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.
