NY Daily News Cover Features Horrifying Stills from Video Posted by WDBJ Shooter
Today’s New York Daily News cover got ripped apart on Twitter last night because it placed horrifying stills from the WDBJ shooting video uploaded by the shooter on its front page. You know the page that everyone, kids and adults, pass by even if they aren’t reading the paper.
No, seriously. They actually did that (WARNING: the image below is pretty damn disturbing):

It’s one thing to show stills from the live TV report, but this is from video posted by the shooter and its the moment he fires the weapon. What the (insert expletives here)? Now everyone in New York has to see it as they pass by a newsstand?
Well, again, it didn’t quite go over well on Twitter:
That is a terrible decision for a cover, @NYDailyNews.

Unfollowing the New York Daily News probably feels amazing and I highly suggest you try it.
