New York Post Criticized For Horrific Subway Death Cover Photo (Video)

Obviously, the photographer should have been trying to save the man's life, instead he thought about his paycheck and snapped at least two shots.

Beyond that, outrage over the insensitivity of the New York Post is pretty well universal or international:

 "Sickening rubber-necking front page from the New York Post," tweeted Guardian sports editor Ian Prior. "Imagine how this man's family feels."

 "The @nypost and the employee who made the call to put the man about to die from a train on its cover are pieces of trash," adds Howard Stern producer Lee Gerowitz. "Despicable."
