Week 14 Blog: Moment of Death in War

Write 200-300 words as if you’re putting on the editor’s hat in the 2009 “Moment of Death and War” coverage, Plaisance, Pg. 180.  Would you have published the photos of Lance Cpl. Bernard?  Why or why not?  Do you think having the “OK” from the Marines for the photos prior to publication would have influenced your decision?  Why or why not?  Do you feel the photographer had to show those photos to the Marines for approval first?  What conditions would have resulted in you publishing or not publishing those photos as a news organization?
