To See or Not to See?

To see or not to see: That is the question. As to the TMZ pic of pop star Rihanna after purported being brutalized by her boyfriend Chris Brown, Fox & Friends and American Morning answered it quite differently. F&F gave it’s viewers long, lingering looks at the painfully disturbing pic: However, according to AM co-host Kiran Chetry, CNN decided not to air the pic “right now” (while acknowledging that the photos were out there).

Obviously, the picture is of public interest due to the high visibility of the attractive, rich, and famous young lovers. Furthermore, it is readily available to anyone with Internet access. However, should domestic violence victims be given a zone of privacy generally accorded to sex crime victims?

FNF has spoken. CNN has not “right now”: Should it? You make the call.
