A New Low 

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Today’s New York Post cover represents a new low for a tabloid already accustomed to plumbing the depths of classlessness. It features an image of Ki Suk Han, a man who perished after being struck by a subway train. The image1 was captured by a freelance photographer purportedly attempting to use the flash of his camera to alert the conductor to Han’s peril. He then decided to sell the image to the Post, and the Post decided to publish it.


Footnotes:

  1. I’ve archived the image here. While harrowing, it’s not graphic.
