Repulse

I visited Reuters‘ website because I was trying to find more info on a New York Times article with a broken link.

I was arrested by the image which greeted me on the front page, which I’ll not link to or display here.

At the time of this writing, the most visible item on the home page is the foot of a dead Chinese student sticking out from beneath the rubble. I was horrified when I saw this…but I’m not sure exactly why. I also don’t know that I’m offended – it seems like relevant journalism to me. I think it’s just the shock of seeing part of a dead child displayed in such a way.

Any thoughts?
