Profane pictures?

November 14, 2011

I have a complaint about profane pictures.

I visit reuters.com with my family to read news together with my children.

We appreciate if the site continues to stay clean. Now we have started noticing that it displays pictures of Victoria’s Secret fashion show, or video on a beheaded Mexican blogger.

Please refrain from making your site sensational, and continue to keep it neat and elegant by placing visuals with more discretion.

I understand your point, but not all of our content is intended for all readers, and it should have been pretty clear what to expect from those items in particular.

If it were me, reading the news with my children, I probably wouldn’t click on items headlined “Another Mexican blogger beheaded” or “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.” GBU Editor
