College Newspaper Photograph Has Some Readers Upset

The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that a University of North Florida story about the spread of throat cancer has caused consternation among some readers. To be accurate, the content of the story isn't the issue. What has some readers upset is the photo that accompanied the story: a picture of a man and a woman in an interesting position. The local paper, the Florida Times-Union, interviewed the campus paper's editor, Josh Gore, who said he thought the photo's shock value was "minimal." He noted most complaints have been from non-students. But UNF's president found the photo "distasteful and inappropriate."
