    I am not posting a link as I am already very disturbed as it is.

    Why on earth would cnn, or any media outlet, put such a horrible story on the front page of there news, let alone with an EXTREMELY disturbing photograph! I might cry over this if I see it again. that is just wrong of the media to show something that disturbing to the public...

    Because the Polar Bear thing is hilarious. That's natural selection.

    Stupid bitch deserved her death. Or would have if they didn't save her.

    I was pretty surprised to see the photograph on the front page, but then I realized that the headline is the only thing that makes it alarming and potentially disturbing. It's not like there was a bloody wound on display.

    This is my F talking, I can not handle reading stories of that nature, pictures even more so x10. Those kind of things effect me very strongly. I understand that kind of thing being in the news, completly. However, it was wrong of cnn to put an image like that on the front page, where you are forced to see it. I send them a rather long email about it.

    I agree that it was a bit tactless to put it in automatic view of everyone. They should set those stories up so that only those who care to click on the headlines will see the accompanying photographs.

    I thought it was awesome. I finally got to see a human body ratioed against a polar bear body.

    CNN and Fox, along with many others in the media, will do just about anything for ratings. Most news media is all about 'sensationalism'.

    Which is why most news media is going down the drain and a lot of newspapers are failing...

    You'd think they'd learn their lessons. If people can't trust them, people won't buy them.

    Although I do agree with you, the picture is pretty benign in itself, people are just letting their imaginations run with the image. (She jumped in, she deserved to face the repercussions if you ask me )

    Yes, it's all about the context really.
