Don’t look!

September 21, 2009

While looking at sports photos on msnbc.com, I encountered this page.

sports photo warning

The text says: “Editor’s Note:  This image contains graphic content that some viewers may find disturbing.  Click to view the image, or use the buttons above to navigate away.”

What was behind the screen?  What horrible image was I being protected from?

A speedskater who cut his knee on his skate blade.  That’s it.

Why did that get a warning?  Why not the boxer being smashed in the face?  That one made me cringe.

Must we be protected from everything?  And who actually complained about the photo to trigger the black box warning?
