Hey boys and girls, welcome to dilemma central. What dilemma you ask? Well check out the new entry in the 'pedia and then come back and read the rest of the rant.
OK, so whatcha think? They were sent by an anonymous e-mailer (first time I ever got an e-mail with no return address, kinda creepy).
There's no info attached to them in the e-mail. I did a little recon via the world wide weird and my sources but no one has ever heard of these autopsy photos. My problem with 'em is that they were sent without a source and I have no way of finding out. Does this set a dangerous precedent? You bet. Is this the direction I want the web page to go? I dunno. On one hand it makes for interesting new content but on the other it does kinda lower our journalistic ethics (like I had any of those to start with). Anyway why would someone fake autopsy pictures? Oh yea I forgot, to sell them to Fox for a network special.
So after much soul searching I've decided to let you be the judge. You can e-mail either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to cast your vote on if they stay in the 'pedia or not.. At the end of 7 days starting from today I'll tally up the e-mails and the one with the highest count determines the fate of the photos. Only one e-mail from one account. and don't stuff the ballot box or I'll figure out who you are and sic Jason on ya.
