The New York Post: Disgraceful Photo

Today the New York Post did something that the world is condemning it for.  The NY Post published a photo of a man who was about to die.

In NY City, you have to be careful when you ride the subway.  There are many crazy people here and in the past some crazy people have pushed other people onto the subway tracks as a subway train was approaching.  This happened yesterday.

Unbelievably, a person took a picture of the man who was about to be hit by the train.  Instead of this photographer trying to help the man, he took a photo.  The New York Post printed this photo on its front page.

I do not even want to post the link to this photo, but here it is. http://now.msn.com/new-york-post-criticized-for-cover-photograph-of-man-about-to-die-on-subway-tracks

Nobody could have offered this guy a helping hand?  Someone had to take a photo instead?

1) What is your general response to what the NY Post did?

2)  What is your opinion of the photographer?

3)  If you had been at the platform, and you saw the man being pushed over the side onto the tracks, what would you have done?


Yes, I'm the guy who caused the "scandal" in Asia two years ago :P



Yes, I'm also the guy who wrote the very funny ESL book: New York City Sucks, But You'll Wanna Live Here Anyway http://www.amazon.com/Sucks-Youll-Wanna-Anyway-ebook/dp/B004TSPAQS
