I can't believe that is the cover of the nypost. Horrible story made worse by a heartless cover—

New York Post readers were greeted this morning with a shocking sight. Slapped across the cover was a photo of a man seconds away from being killed by an oncoming subway train:
The Post is now facing a very nasty backlash — and they’ve earned it:
Now i can't un-see that…. The New York Post cover today is too much for my heart.—

I hope the editors behind today's NYPost cover have their last moments of life horrible exploited.—

And what about the man who lost his life?

But perhaps the Post’s colossal lapse in taste highlights something even more disturbing than the cover itself:
Why did no one save the man in NY? Why did people just watch him instead of helping him?—
